The Tokai-to-Kamioka Experiment studies neutrino oscillations using a muon neutrino beam produced by the J-PARC accelerator complex. Among the flagship measurements is the appearance of electron neutrinos and the precision measurement of the “disappearance” of muon neutrinos due to neutrino oscillations which are currently the world’s best. In this seminar, I will discuss some of the challenges associated with these analyses and some new techniques that have significantly improved the sensitivity of the experiment, and explore future possibilities.
