26 Summary for Double Chooz The Double Chooz experiment –Double Chooz will be the first of a new generation of reactor neutrino experiments. It is the one of the best experimental concept to measure 13 The status of DoubleChooz Experiment –Detector Construction are close to the final stages. Installation of DAQ/Electronics starts in the next week. Filling of Liquid Scintillator follows. –We should observe the neutrino from reactor in this year! –Construction of the near site/detector will be started soon. Prospects for the future –First data taking expected to start in 2010 with far detector only sin 2 (2 13 ) < 0.06 in 1.5 year –From year 2011~, take data with the both near and far detectors sin 2 (2 13 ) < 0.03 in 3 years
