Kamioka - past, present and future

 

More than 30 years ago, the Kamiokande experiment began in Kamioka. Because the results from Kamiokande was recognized to be so importnat, Super Kamiokande was constructed. It began the experiment in 1996. In 1998, neutrino oscillation was discovered with the studies of atmospheric neutrinos. Since then, Super-Kamiokande has been contributed to various neutrino studies. Now Hyper-Kamiokande is seriously discussed as the next generation neutrino detector. Prof. Kajita will discuss these experiments, emphasizing the status and physics of Hyper-Kamiokande.
