No core time except weekly meeting and some seminars.
Students and researchers share a large room (H501). We have our own desk and a laptop PC (Mac or Linux). Many textbooks on theory, experiment, programming and electronics are available in our own library. A refrigerator, kettle, espresso machine and microwave are available.
Undergraduate students are not assigned to the specific experiments, work on a experiment only with students under staff's guidance. In the first half term, they measure muon lifetime to learn how to use measuring instruments and how to analyze data with C++ program. In the later half term, they decide a topic and work on their own graduation research. They also have some seminars on particle physics and experimental technique throughout the year.
At the beginning of the master course, students choose between the KOTO or ATLAS experiment. Many of them work on detectors R&D or data acquisition system. If needed, they visit some institutes (such as J-PARC, KEK or CERN) for further studies.
Ph.D. students will mainly work on physics data analysis.
We discuss freely at anytime, even in drinking parties :) Of course we usually have a chat as well !
We have a group tour once a year. The last time, we visited Tokushima, and did various activities there. You can check out the pics in the Events section. However, due to the COVID-19 situation, we have only being doing online events recently.
Everyone is highly welcome! If you wish to visit our laboratory, please contact anyone in the staff.
