Abstract content

Hyper-Kamiokande (Hyper-K) is a proposed next generation neutrino experiment, aiming at the measurement which starts at 2026. Hyper-K project includes a high intensity accelerator neutrino beamline at J-PARC and one to two underground large water Cherenkov detectors as the far detectors. Each far detector will provide the fiducial volume of 0.19 Mt ultra-pure water, with its cylindrical water tanks surrounded with newly developed photo-sensors. Due to its world-largest volume, superior performance of the new photodetector and the location at deep underground, Hyper-K will push back the frontiers of neutrino astrophysics. In this presentation, the issues for the neutrino astrophysics will be reviewed, and then Hyper-K’s detector performance and our physics reach for them will be discussed, i.e., for solar neutrino, supernova burst neutrino and supernova relic neutrino.
