KEK is Japan’s high-energy accelerator research organization. The original facility in Tsukuba is now home to the SuperKEKB collider, where world-leading research into flavour physics is performed alongside other research programmes in particle and accelerator physics. The newer J-PARC facility in Tokai was founded in 2006, and is home to a high-intensity proton accelerator that provides a neutrino beam for the T2K experiment and serves other particle- and nuclear-physics experiments, as well as investigations into materials and life sciences.

NuFact 2021 brought together experimentalists, theorists and accelerator physicists in pursuit of CKM-level precision in neutrino physics.
In an attempt to shed light on the neutron-lifetime puzzle, a team at Japan’s KEK laboratory in collaboration with Japanese universities has developed a new experimental setup.
Silicon pixel detectors for particle tracking have blossomed into a vast array of beautiful creations that have driven numerous discoveries, with no signs of the advances slowing d...
The FIPs 2020 workshop was structured around portals that may link the Standard Model to a rich dark sector: axions, dark photons, dark scalars and heavy neutral leptons.
Boris Kayser explains how neutrino physicists are now closing in on a crucial piece of evidence on the origin of the matter–antimatter asymmetry observed in the Universe.
