The MEMPHYS Project

Abstract : MEMPHYS is a proposed 0.5 Mton scale Water Cherenkov experiment to be performed deep underground. Possible sites are under study in the European FP7 design study LAGUNA. It is dedicated to nucleon decay, neutrinos from supernovæ, solar and atmospheric neutrinos, as well as neutrinos from a future Super-Beam or β-Beam to measure the mixing angle θ13, the CP violating phase δ and the mass hierarchy. A small-scale prototype, Memphyno, has been constructed with the purpose of serving as a test bench for new photodetection and data acquisition solutions, such as grouped readout system.
