A new electron-multiplier-tube-based beam monitor for muon monitoring at the T2K experiment
Muon beam monitoring is indispensable for indirectly monitoring accelerator-produced neutrino beams in real time. Though Si photodiodes and ionization chambers have been successfully used as muon
J-PARC Neutrino Beamline Upgrade Technical Design Report
In this document, technical details of the upgrade plan of the J-PARC neutrino beamline for the extension of the T2K experiment are described. T2K has proposed to accumulate data corresponding to
Measurement of lead-target neutrino interactions using the whole T2K near detector
This thesis presents a selection of neutrino interactions occurring within the Electromagnetic Calorimeters (ECals) of the T2K off-axis near detector, ND280. ND280 is situated 2.5 off axis with
Three-Flavor Oscillations with Accelerator Neutrino Beams
The three-flavor neutrino oscillation paradigm is well established in particle physics thanks to the crucial contribution of accelerator neutrino beam experiments. In this paper we review the most
Measurement of the neutrino-oxygen neutral current quasi-elastic interaction cross-section by observing nuclear de-excitation $\gamma$-rays in the T2K experiment
The T2K (Tokai to Kamioka) experiment is a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment. A 30 GeV proton beam is used to produce the intense muon neutrino beam at J-PARC, and the average energy of
The T2K Experiment
The T2K experiment itself is described in this chapter, including the beamline, detectors, and simulations used to predict the expected observables at the near and far detectors. A short introduction
Measurement of neutrino and antineutrino oscillations by the T2K experiment including a new additional sample of nu(e) interactions at the far detector
The T2K experiment reports an updated analysis of neutrino and antineutrino oscillations in appearance and disappearance channels. A sample of electron neutrino candidates at Super-Kamiokande in
Measurement of neutrino and antineutrino neutral-current quasielasticlike interactions on oxygen by detecting nuclear deexcitation γ rays
Neutrino- and antineutrino-oxygen neutral-current quasielastic-like interactions are measured at Super-Kamiokande using nuclear de-excitation $\gamma$-rays to identify signal-like interactions in
Design and Diagnostics of High-Precision Accelerator Neutrino Beams
Neutrino oscillation physics has entered a new precision era, which poses major challenges to the level of control and diagnostics of the neutrino beams. In this paper, we review the design of
T2K measurements of muon neutrino and antineutrino disappearance using $3.13\times 10^{21}$ protons on target
We report measurements by the T2K experiment of the parameters $\theta_23$ and $\Delta m^2_{32}$ which govern the disappearance of muon neutrinos and antineutrinos in the three-flavor PMNSneutrino


T2K neutrino flux prediction
The Tokai-to-Kamioka (T2K) experiment studies neutrino oscillations using an off-axis muon neutrino beam with a peak energy of about 0.6 GeV that originates at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research
