Recent Results from Super-Kamiokande on Atmospheric Neutrino Measurements Choji Saji ICRR,Univ. of Tokyo for the Super-Kamiokande collaboration ICHEP 2004, Beijing Contents Atmospheric neutrino oscillation studies using full Super-Kamiokande I(SK-I) data – oscillation analysis – L/E analysis – 3-flavor analysis Status of Super-Kamiokande II(SK-II)

2-flavor oscillation analysis ● Expectation - Three dimensional (3D) flux calculation - interaction parameters (tuned by K2K data) ● Treatment of systematic errors in 2 calculation - Each systematic error source is treated as independent error term(39 error terms) Data set: full SK-I (FC,PC 1489days, up- 1646 days) Improvements:

L/E Analysis Expand fiducial volume(FC) need more statistics Select events with high resolution in L/E L/E < 70% FC(single, multi-ring) -like PC A first dip should be observed Direct evidence for oscillations Strong constraint to oscillation parameters, especially m 2 value FC single-ring Full oscillation 1/2 oscillation (L/E)=70% Oscillation Decay Decoherence

L/E Distribution Null oscillation MC 1489.2 days FC+PC First dip is seen as expected by neutrino oscillation Best fit expectation w/ systematic errors Mostly downward Mostly upward

L/E Significance Oscillation Decay Decoherence The first dip of the data cannot be explained by other models 2 ( decay – oscillation) =11.4 3.4 2 ( decoherence - oscillation) =14.6 3.8
