The Kamioka Proton Decay Experiment
A report is given of the potential capabilities and the present status of the Kamioka Proton Decay Experiment. The detector is a 3000 ton water Cerenkov detector which utilizes 1,000 huge, newly developed 20” photomultipliers, and has outstanding energy resolution and good capability for identifying various decay modes of nucleons. Data taking is expected to begin in late 1982.
