First neutrino oscillation results from T2K announced
The Lancaster T2K group announces the release of T2K's first neutrino oscillation results which were the focus of international press coverage on Wednesday 15th June.
These results give indications that neutrino oscillations encompass all three neutrino flavours, in which case they may have played a significant role in the preference for matter over anti-matter in the early universe without which our universe would not exist.

Lancaster neutrino physicists have been involved in the work of both of this year's Nobel Prize for Physics laureates, but particularly with that of Professor Arthur McDonald on both the SNO experiment for which the prize was awarded, and the successive, current SNO+ experiment. In 2001, SNO demonstrated conclusively that neutrinos change type as they traverse the distance between the Sun and the Earth, solving a 40-year puzzle.
