The Tokai-to-Kamioka (T2K) experiment is the world’s first off-axis long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment, based in Japan. The accelerator at the new J-PARC facility produces a beam of muon neutrinos, which travel 295 km before reaching the Super-Kamiokande detector. The two primary goals of the experiment are precision measurements of the nu_mu disappearance parameters (theta_23 and the associated mass squared difference) and the first measurement of theta_13, the last of the standard neutrino mixing angles to be observed. The off-axis design makes T2K particularly well suited to both tasks. This talk will present results on both topics from the first year of T2K data.
