IceCube detection of a high-energy particle proves 60-year-old theory
It has made it possible for the first time to distinguish between particles and antiparticles in high-energy cosmic neutrinos, which has been considered difficult until now. By making this identification possible, it is expected that it will bring new knowledge to the elucidation of the mechanism of cosmic neutrino generation and will play an important role in future major developments in neutrino astronomy.
The main part of the research in which the result was also featured in the world's leading multidisciplinary science journal, Nature, was conducted by Dr. Lu Lu, a former researcher of the International Center for Hadron Astrophysics (ICEHAP) of Chiba University. This international research institute for High-Energy Hadron Astrophysics led by the neutrino astronomy with the world's most sensitive instruments and massive numerical simulations of cosmic dynamics was established in 2012 and lead by Professor of Physics in Graduate School of Science and ICEHAP Director, Dr. Shigeru Yoshida.
Chiba University is part of the ‘IceCube Collaboration’, and hosted the first ever Icecube meeting in Asia, the IceCube Collaboration Meeting 2019. Chiba Convention Bureau took part in the said event by providing support and assistance.
