Satoshi Mihara

High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK)

Satoshi MIHARA is an experimentalist at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) / Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). He worked in the OPAL experiment at LEP and is now involved in muon rare decay search experiments, the MEG at Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland and the COMET at J-PARC.

His research interest is in searches for physics beyond the Standard Model with a complementary approach to high-energy frontier experiments. He is also interested in developing photon detector and calorimeter especially for the use in low energy particle physics experiments. He has contributed largely in constructing the MEG liquid xenon photon detector as well as the COMET LYSO calorimeter.

He is based in Tsukuba and Tokai village where KEK and J-PARC are located. In addition to research work described above, he is also making contributions in Summer Student Programs hosted by KEK/J-PARC and education in a graduate school SOKENDAI.
