28 06.06F.Suekane, KASKA27 1/2 scale inner acrylic dorm.  =90cm, t=1cm) -> manufacturing method. -> Test of achievable precision

29 06.06F.Suekane, KASKA28 LS compatibility acceleration test (35 deg) of acrylic joint 1day 1week 1month Before soak After soak Some incompatibility was Observed. Now we think we know how to avoid this effect

30 06.06F.Suekane, KASKA29 Construction sequence

31 06.06F.Suekane, KASKA30 LoI will appear in ArXiv soon. ~80 pages

32 06.06F.Suekane, KASKA31 Funding schemes: possible 3 ways * Budget request as University Project * Grant in Aid for Scientific Research * Support from KEK 2006 2005 2007 Now Funding Issue 1st review [End of August] (If it fails, we would like to join to DCHOOZ here) As DCHOOZ request(Sep.-Oct.) We would like prepare the request form from now. If GASR is approved the fund will be available from here. JFY (Apr.-Mar.) If KEK decides to support us, we may be able to start before next JFY starts.

33 06.06F.Suekane, KASKA32 Summary (1)KASKA uses highest reactor power, optimum baseline and can measure sin 2 2  13 with 10 times better sensitivity of current limit. (2) R&D has been progressing. (3)Now struggling for funding. We will know in the end of August if our final trial fails. (4) In that case, we would like to join DCHOOZ and do next budget request for DCHOOZ. If the request is <$5M, the probablity of approval is high. (5) In any case we would like to start to plan the next budget request as DCHOOZ.
