Review of Future Nucleon Decay Experiments

  • A. L. Grant
Part of the Progress in Physics book series (PMP, volume 9)


At a time when the first results are becoming available from the IMB Water Chenenkov, the Kolar Gold Field and the Mont Blanc tracking calorimeters, it is appropriate to review the status and expected performance of the whole range of future nucleon decay experiments; from those under construction, Komioka and Fréjus, to the future dreams of kilotons of liquid argon.
