|Contents||In the laboratory, they have been advancing the research of neutrino observation and proton decay by Super-Kamiokande. Super-Kamiokande is a system in which photodetectors (photoelectron multipliers) are arranged on the inner surface of a water tank and the Cherenkov light generated in water is captured.
A next-generation water Cherenkov type experiment system of a larger size is currently in the planning stages. To this end, high-performance and inexpensive photodetectors will be required.
We seek collaboration with a relevant company or institution with an aim toward further developing an innovative amplifying method or manufacturing process of flat panel detectors by new material glasses.
