HyperKamiokande: a next generation long baseline neutrino experiment in Japan
The seminar will present the HyperKamiokande (HyperK) project which will build a large volume water Cerenkov detector for long baseline neutrino oscillation studies in Japan. A brief historical resume of the discovery of neutrino oscillations will be provided. The presentation will give an overview of the design of the HyperK detector and its main technical features. Details of the scientific programme to be undertaken will also be discussed. The prospects for the project to determine fundamental measurements such as CP violation and mass hierarchy will also be presented.
