Abstract content

The Super-Kamiokande (SK) detector, a large water Cherenkov detector, is well-suited to proton decay searches, with $7.5 \times 10^{33}$ protons in the 22.5 kiloton fiducial volume. SK has been carried out searches for proton (nucleon) decay via many decay modes, like $p \rightarrow e^{+}\pi^{0}$, $p \rightarrow \mu^{+}\pi^{0}$, $p \rightarrow \bar{\nu}K^{+}$, and many other decay modes. This poster presentation overviews the recent experimental results on nucleon decay searches with Super-Kamiokande.
