Abstract

Neutrinos are subatomic particles that interact with matter only very rarely, and require vast underground detectors to observe. This talk will describe visualization of neutrinos interacting inside a huge water detector in Japan called Super-Kamiokande.

The Visualization seminar series is a forum for faculty, staff and students from across the university to share their research involving the development and/or application of visualization methodologies. Our goal is to build an interdisciplinary community of visualization experts whose combined knowledge can facilitate research and promote innovation.
