Description

Hyper-Kamiokande (Hyper-K) is a proposed next generation underground large water Cherenkov detector with 260 kton of water and 40% photo coverage.
With about 10 times larger fiducial volume than Super-Kamiokande, the sensitivities for astrophysical neutrinos, like solar neutrinos or supernova neutrinos, will be greatly improved in Hyper-K. In this presentation, we will discuss the physics potential of Hyper- K on astrophysical neutrinos and expected performance of the detector.
