We have developed HypTPC consists of TPC and the trigger hodoscope for the J-PARC hadron experiments. The TPC Hodoscope has large scintillators of 80 7 1 cm to cover the TPC. Especially, we have developed a readout circuit for multiple MPPCs to detect photons generated over a large area of the scintillator. A general methods of applying voltage to multiple MPPCs are parallel and series connections. In the case of parallel connections, a signal has a long tail due to the large sensor capacitance. MEG collaboration used four MPPC segments as a serial connection. However, in the case of a series connection, the requiring bias voltage is very high, and the gain is low. To avoid this problem, we have developed a new individual biasing method with a summing amplifier for stable multiple MPPC readouts. We also made prototype detectors and performed a cosmic-ray test. Brief descriptions of our prototypes and preliminary results of the cosmic-ray test are presented in this article.

J-PARC E40 aims to measure the differential cross sections of the elastic scatterings and the conversion. A clear peak of was observed in a missing mass spectrum of the reaction and recoil protons from the elastic scattering were successfully observed in the data taken in the summer 2018. The rest of data taking is coming in the spring 2019.

We performed a gamma-ray spectroscopy of at J-PARC Hadron Experimental Facility in 2015. It is the first measurement of rays emitted from -shell hypernuclei. In this experiment, we determined the energy spacing between the ground state spin doublet, and states, as 316 keV. The excitation energies of and states are also determined to be 895 and 1266 keV, respectively. The energy spacing is found to be well reproduced by shell-model calculations which describe - and -shell hypernuclei well. The results show that the present theories of the interaction describe not only the light hypernuclei but also a heavier hypernucleus.

We measured the reaction spectra at 1.8 GeV/ for the graphite and the polyethylene targets in the J-PARC E05 pilot experiment. By comparing the spectra for these two targets, it was found that in the B nucleus is quite broadened. Furthermore, we also compared broadness of with obtained in the spectrum. seems to be much more broadened in nuclei than . We gave a possible interpretation, which is related to compositeness of decuplet baryons, for this situation.

The interaction is not much studied than the interaction. To understand the interaction, we study hypernuclei. As for the hypernucleus, only the ground state of has been observed. To obtain more information about the interaction, the excited state should be studied. Therefore, we measure the missing-mass of the He reaction at GeV/ and 2-14 at the J-PARC K1.8 beam line. The ground state of is observed whereas a peak of the excited states is not observed. We also observe suppression of the quasi-free process at smaller angles.

A di-quark correlation has been proposed to describe the internal structure of hadrons, especially those of exotic ones. Nevertheless it lacks a conclusive experimental evidence. The J-PARC E50 experiment performs charmed baryon spectroscopy at J-PARC high-momentum beam line to investigate the role of di-quark correlations in baryons. The energy levels of the excited sates are measured by a missing-mass technique for the first time, and the production rates and decay branching ratios are also measured.

We have developed a gas electron multiplier (GEM)-based time projection chamber (TPC) for the H-dibaryon search experiment at J-PARC. High-rate beam particles enter a TPC gas volume of approximately 0.2 m, in a direction perpendicular to the electric field. A long-rectangular hollow section is located inside the TPC volume to accommodate a diamond target. We commissioned the TPC using 230 MeV protons with beam rates of up to 1 MHz. The TPC data acquisition system collected 5768 pad signals in full readout mode, with almost 100% efficiency, at a preset trigger rate of 230 Hz. We operated the TPC in an Ar/CH gas mixture (90/10) without a magnetic field. The spatial resolutions on the pad plane are measured to be 400-700 m, which correspond to 230-300 m in a magnetic field of 1 T. We confirmed high tracking capability at beam rates of up to 1 MHz.

Experimental results from the J-PARC E13 experiments are summarized. A new experimental set up of E13 has established a platform for the future -ray hypernuclear spectroscopy at J-PARC using kaon beams. New rays are identified in He and F. The energy of 1.406 MeV for the He transition confirmed a sizable effect of Charge Symmetry Breaking (CSB) in interaction in the hypernuclear system. The identification of four rays in F is made for the first time in shell hypernuclei. Especially, energy spacing of the ground state doublet is found to be 315.5 keV. A good agreement with two theoretical calculations suggests that the theoretical formalism used in shell hypernuclei is also applicable to heavier hypernuclei. Lastly, an overview of the future J-PARC E63 experiment is given.

For the full understanding of baryon-baryon interactions in flavor , the interaction is the last missing piece of information. So far, we have revealed the interaction to be attractive ( MeV), and interaction to be repulsive in the medium to heavy mass-number region. The bonding energy is weakly attractive. While we have a few experimental observations suggesting the interaction would be attractive, there still exist large theoretical ambiguities weather it is attractive or not. Experimental determinations on the existence of bound states of hypernuclei by observing bound-state peaks are strongly awaited. In this report, a new preliminary result on the missing-mass spectrum of a C reaction, which strongly suggests the existence of -hypernuclear bound states, is presented.

We report on the first observation of rays emitted from an -shell hypernucleus, F. The energy spacing between the ground state doublet, and states, of F is determined to be keV by measuring the -ray energy of the transition. In addition, three -ray peaks are observed and assigned as , , and transitions. The excitation energies of the and states are determined to be keV and keV, respectively. It is found that the ground state doublet spacing is well described by theoretical models based on existing - and -shell hypernuclear data.

The missing mass spectroscopy of hypernuclei is planned at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) by using the reaction. We are constructing a new magnetic spectrometer, S-2S, which has a better momentum resolution [ (FHWM)] than that of an existing spectrometer (SKS) at J-PARC. S-2S would give us an opportunity to confirm the existence of hypernuclei as a peak structure owing to both the high momentum resolution and its reasonably large solid angle. Brief descriptions of our experiment and of its preparation status are presentedin this article.

The present status and future prospects of precision -ray spectroscopy of hypernuclei are described. A new experiment (J-PARC E13) has been performed at the J-PARC K1.8 line employing a newly-developed germanium (Ge) detector array, Hyperball-J, via the reaction on He and F targets. This is the first study of -shell and -shell hypernuclei with Ge detectors. The He target spectrum exhibited a -ray peak of at MeV. Compared with the energy ( MeV) of the corresponding transition for the mirror hypernucleus, , the present result clearly indicates a large charge symmetry breaking (CSB) effect. This decisive data for CSB allows a stringent test of baryon-baryon interaction models. As for the F target run, a preliminary spectrum shows several -ray peaks assigned to transitions. Future plans of -ray spectroscopy are also discussed.

One of the main items of the J-PARC E13 experiment is the search for excited states of the He hypernucleus via the He reaction at 1.5 GeV/c. The missing-mass spectrum of the He reaction was obtained in an angular range from 0 to 20 degrees. We show the count-base spectrum of the missing-mass in the angular range from 2 to 14 degrees. The ground state of He and He were clearly observed in the missing-mass spectrum. We also show three missing-mass spectra divided by the reaction angle.

The first -ray spectroscopy of -shell hypernucleus, F, is performed in June, 2015 at the J-PARC K1.8 beam line (J-PARC E13). Precise energy levels of F can be revealed by measured rays in this experiment. Especially, the strength of spin-spin interaction in -shell hypernucleus is obtained through the energy spacing of the ground-state doublet of the hypernucleus. By comparing its strength between the , , and -shell hypernuclei, a radial dependence interaction is investigated. The hypernucleus is produced through the reaction with the beam momentum of 1.8 GeV/c. In very preliminary results, we observed two rays, and their energies are keV and keV where the uncertainties are only statistical.

We searched for the bound state of the neutron-rich -hypernucleus H, using the Li double charge-exchange reaction at a beam momentum of 1.2 GeV/ at J-PARC. A total of was driven onto a Li target of 3.5 g/cm thickness. No event was observed below the bound threshold, i.e., the mass of H+, in the missing-mass spectrum of the Li reaction in the angular range. Furthermore, no event was found up to 2.8 MeV/c above the bound threshold.

バリオン励起状態(N,)は長年にわたって研究されてきたが、その性質や質量スペクトルに関する我々の知見は大変限られている。最近、Dynamical-Couple Channel (DCC)模型の発展により、反応がこれらの励起状態に大きく寄与することが分かってきた。しかしながら、反応データは1970年代に測定された24万事象に限られており、決定的に不足している。そのため、我々はJ-PARCにおいて統計を二桁上げるE45実験を提案した。この実験においては、Hzのビームを用いて超電導Helmholtz型双極磁石に設置したTime Projection Chamberでこれらの反応を測定する。これらの測定をビーム運動量を細かく変えながら高統計で測定する。本発表では実験の設計と準備状況、シミュレーションの結果を報告する。

We have carried out a pilot data taking of the J-PARC E05 experiment to search for the bound state peaks of Be in the C reaction at 1.8 GeV/. The measurement was performed at the K1.8 beam line of the J-PARC hadron experimental hall with a typical beam intensity of every six seconds. So far the best energy resolution of about 6 MeV FWHM was achieved with the existing SKS spectrometer. With a reasonable statistics, we have succeeded to observe peak structures in the bound region, which seems to suggest that the potential depth of would be deeper than 14 MeV estimated in the previous measurements.

これまで反K中間子と原子核の間の相互作用はK中間子原子(K-中間子と原子核の電磁相互作用による束縛状態)のX線を用いて研究が行われてきた。しかし、このK中間子原子のX線測定では理論モデルの種類によって結果が大きく依存するという問題がため、X線測定だけでは相互作用を決定することが困難である。そこで、われわれはC(K, p)反応におけるエネルギースペクトルを測定し、理論計算と比較する手法を用いて反K中間子と原子核の間の相互作用を決定しようとしている。この手法は既にKEK E548実験で行われているが、実験セットアップ上の問題点が指摘されているため、過去の高エネルギー加速器研究機構での実験では不十分である。そこで、われわれはJ-PARCにおいて再実験を行い、正しくC(K, p)のスペクトルを取得することに成功した。
