Why is there an abundance of matter compared to antimatter in the Universe? This question has stymied physicists for years, but researchers at York University, along with other Canadian institutions as part of the international Tokai-to-Kamioka (T2K) Collaboration, have found neutrinos may hold the answer.
York University physics Professor Sampa Bhadra, and her group, are on the Tokai to Kamioka (T2K) team that received the 2016 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics on Sunday. The prize is "for the fundamental discovery of neutrino oscillations, revealing a new frontier beyond, and possibly far beyond, the standard model of particle physics”. The $ […]
TORONTO, July 19, 2013 – Today TRIUMF, a Canadian laboratory for nuclear and particle physics that works in partnership with York University and University of Toronto, announced a new breakthrough in understanding neutrinos – nature’s most elusive particles. The international Tokai to Kamioka (T2K) collaboration designed an experiment to investigate how neutrinos change from one […]
