Wed. Jul. 18, 2018

Observing supernova relic neutrinos from the ‘big bang’ seems like an experiment from a galaxy, far, far, away. However, the Japanese Super-Kamiokande, the world’s largest water Cherenkov detector, can make these observations — but it needs refurbishing.

Jamieson is undertaking this work as part of his proposal for joining the Super-Kamiokande collaboration.
