A Review of the Use of Super Kamiokande to Determine Atmospheric Neutrino Oscillations

A. Bala

Abstract


Abstract
Super Kamiokande is a large water Cherenkov detectors situated at kamioka town in Japan. It
was commissioned in 1996 and data taken began since then. The sole aim of this detector is to
study atmospheric neutrinos, solar neutrinos, sterile neutrinos search for proton decays and
other astrophysical sources. Lots of significant progress has been made during recent years in
understanding of neutrino oscillation. This paper reports some findings of atmospheric
neutrino oscillation using data taken from super kamiokande and other detectors of similar
purpose. It also highlights some of the future projects based on this research area.
Keywords: Kamiokande, neutrino, atmospheric, oscillation
