Prof. Tornow Attends Award Celebration in Japan

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Prof. Emeritus Werner Tornow has followed an invitation to Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan to celebrate the Breakthrough in Fundamental Physics Prize awarded to Prof. Atsuto Suzuki and to the other members of the KamLAND Collaboration who co-authored the first KamLAND publication (DOI), and share their prize money. This was Prof. Tornow’s second trip to Japan within two months.

The picture shows Prof. Atsuto Suzuki at the center and Prof. Tornow on the right side of the first row, together with other current members of the KamLAND collaboration. The “sign language” by some of the individuals shown in the picture refer to the anti-neutrinos detected by the KamLAND collaboration.
