Summary

Superkamiokande, an underground particle detector in Japan, was the first to succeed in measuring neutrino masses. In this TechView, Nakahata describes the experiments that led to this success, and discusses the insights gained from this and other underground detectors around the world into the properties of these elusive particles.
