Super-Kamiokande is a 50 kiloton water Cherenkov detector located at the Kamioka Observatory of the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research, University of Tokyo. It was designed to study neutrino oscillations and carry out searches for the decay of the nucleon. The Super-Kamiokande experiment began in 1996 and in the ensuing decade of running has produced extremely important results in the fields of atmospheric and solar neutrino oscillations, along with setting stringent limits on the decay of the… 

Probing neutrino decay scenarios by using the Earth matter effects on supernova neutrinos

The observation of Earth matter effects in the spectrum of neutrinos coming from a next galactic core-collapse supernova (CCSN) could, in principle, reveal if neutrino mass ordering is normal or

Nuclear pasta and supernova neutrinos at late times

Nuclear pasta, with nucleons arranged into tubes, sheets, or other complex shapes, is expected in core collapse supernovae (SNe) at just below nuclear density. We calculate the additional opacity

Observation of Disappearance of Muon Neutrinos in the NuMI Beam

The Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search (MINOS) is a two detector long-baseline neutrino experiment designed to study the disappearance of muon neutrinos. MINOS will test the {nu}{sub {mu}}

Sterile Neutrino Searches at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is capable of performing a unique search for sterile neutrinos through the exploitation of a matter enhanced resonant neutrino oscillation phenomena. As atmospheric

Neutrino-electron scattering in noncommutative space

Neutral particles can couple with the U(1) gauge field in the adjoint representation at the tree level if the space-time coordinates are noncommutative (NC). Considering neutrino-photon coupling in

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

Constrains on an uniform model for Dark Matter and Dark Energy

In this paper, outlined some of the most important concepts about Dark Matter and methods of their registration, in particular by using SQUIDs, a toy uniform model for Dark Matter and Dark Energy is

Spontaneous symmetry breaking in collective neutrino oscillations

We explore the phenomenon of spontaneous symmetry breaking in the context of collective neutrino flavor oscillations. Namely, we investigate the spontaneous breaking of isotropy in a homogeneous gas
