Current T2K Status and Hyper-Kamiokande Perspectives

Francesca Di Lodovico(Queen Mary College, London University)


In this talk, the latest results from the T2K experiment in Japan are reviewed, in particular addressing the recent observation of the muon-into-electron neutrino appearance and the updated results on the muon neutrino disappearance. An overview of the future beam and detector upgrade of the experiment, Hyper-Kamiokande, will be given, showing both the future expected sensitivity and current R&D status.
