Super-Kamiokande



Super-Kamiokande is a 50,000 ton ring-imaging water Cerenkov detector located at a depth of 2700 meters water equivalent in the Kamioka Mozumi mine in Japan. Super-K was designed to search for proton decay, and to study atmosphericand solar neutrinos. Super-K has found evidence of the transformation of muon type neutrinos to tau type neutrinos (neutrino oscillations). This is taken as strong evidence that neutrinos have a small, but finite mass.
