Neutrino Researches at the Super-Kamiokande explained by Professor Masayuki Nakahata, Director of Kamioka Observatory, ICRR
Professor Hiroyuki Sagawa of ICRR explains the Telescope Array project that aims to detect ultra-high-energy cosmic rays at Utah, USA
Professor Masahiro Teshima of ICRR explains CTA project that aims to detect high-energy gamma rays from outer space by ground-based telescope
Professor and Director of KAGRA Observatory Masatake Ohashi explains KAGRA project which aims to contribute to explore the gravitational wave astronomy.
Neutrino and Astrophysics Research
Super-Kamiokande aims to reveal the Universe’s history and to explore the nature of elementary particles through the observation of neutrinos and a discovery of proton decay.
High Energy Cosmic Ray Research
Aiming at highest energy cosmic ray physics by detecting weak light from atmosphere.
Astrophysics and Gravity Research
We aim to promote gravitational wave astronomy by participating the world gravitational wave observation network with the large-scale cryogenic gravitational wave telescope, KAGRA.
The Institute for Cosmic Ray Research (ICRR) conducts observations and studies cosmic rays from various aspects. Its predecessor was a lodge for research, called Asahi Hut, built on Mt.Norikura based on an Asahi Academic Grant. In 1953, it was transformed into the Cosmic Ray Observatory of The University of Tokyo.Read More
