Welcome to the Super-Kamiokande experiment page at the University of California, Irvine.


Drawing of SuperKamiokande

Super-Kamiokande is a 50,000 ton ring-imaging water Cerenkov detector located at depth of 2700 meters water equivalent in the Kamioka Mozumi mine in Japan. It is used mostly for the search for proton decay, and for neutrino and cosmic ray observations.

Here are more pictures of the detector (and supernova), and an easy to understand description.

You should see the official Super-Kamiokande home page at the University of Washington (also there is an older location and older version of the home page).

You can find What's new at the Super-Kamiokande WWW at UCI. This is a good place to check what has changed here since you last visited these pages.
