I am working to upgrade the Super-Kamiokande (Super-K) detector by introducing Gadolinium (Gd) to the water. This enhancement will enable the experiment to observe neutrons produced in neutrino (and other) interactions, which in turn will allow Super-K to observe relic supernova neutrinos and reactor neutrinos.
Currently, I am developing a device to precisely measure the transparency of liquid solutions, such as the pure water of Super-K and a 0.1% (by mass) Gd solution. Additionally, I am performing studies of data quality and background estimates for the Gd upgrade.
