About This PhD Project

Project Description

The Hyper-Kamiokande experiment is a proposed extremely large (Mton scale) water Cherenkov neutrino detector in Japan. Hyper-K will act as the far detector for a proposed next-generation neutrino oscillation experiment, but also has a strong research programme in non-accelerator neutrino physics. One area in which Hyper-K has good potential is the study of neutrinos from the next Galactic core-collapse supernova. The student will work on implementing the most up-to-date models of core-collapse supernovae in the Hyper-K simulation and investigating the sensitivity to the properties of both neutrinos and supernovae offered by the detection of a hypothetical supernova at a distance of order 10 kpc. (A real Galactic supernova cannot, unfortunately, be guaranteed on the timescale of a PhD studentship...)
