UWinnipeg collaborates with Super-Kamiokande

Mon. Aug. 24, 2020

Observing supernova relic neutrinos from the ‘big bang’ is on the mind of University of Winnipeg physicist Dr. Blair Jamieson. The refurbished Japanese Super-Kamiokande*(Super-K), the world’s largest water Cherenkov detector, can make these observations — and it is back in business. Several UWinnipeg students are working with Jamieson as part of the international collaboration, contributing to the calibration of Super-K in this new phase by making measurements of the locations of the light-sensitive detectors using photogrammetry.
