Description

Hyper-Kamiokande (Hyper-K) is a next generation underground water Cherenkov neutrino detector. It will serve as a far detector for a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment using the J-PARC neutrino beam, with sensitivity to exclude CP conservation over a range of parameter space. Hyper-K has a broad physics program, with further sensitivity to proton decay, atmospheric neutrinos, and neutrinos from astronomical sources. The experimental set-up will be described as well as the physics potential, with particular reference to the sensitivity for CP violation.
