Dr Tatsuhiro Naka (Nagoya University)


Higher resolution nuclear emulsion is possible to detect the nuclear recoil tracks in principle. We are advancing the R&D of nuclear emulsion experiment for directional dark matter search. Especially, new technique for readout of recoil tracks was developed, we did the test of readout of tracks induced by neutron. Moreover we are advancing the development of X-ray microscope system for the analysis of recoiled tracks. In this talk, I will report about the above R&D status and future planning.
