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.

There is a long-standing argument of the existence of kaonic nucleus, which is a bound state of anti-kaon and nucleus. Theoretically, its existence is strongly supported, however its binding energy and width have not been established yet. It is strongly desired to have an experiment to investigate the simplest kaonic nucleus, so-called bound state. We performed an experiment to search for via the in-flight reaction at J-PARC. By studying invariant mass spectrum in the final state and its dependence on momentum transfer of , we observed a resonant state located below . The mass and width of this resonant state are MeV/, and MeV, respectively, which can be naturally interpreted as a theoretically predicted bound state.

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.

To manage the equivalent doses for radiation workers, exposure inhomogeneity is an important factor in the decision-making process related to protection measures and additional monitoring. Our previous study proposed the methodology to evaluate the inhomogeneity of exposure quantitatively. In this study, we applied proposed method to five different types of actual exposure situations in the nuclear industry. Two of them were conventionally characterized as homogeneous exposure, but the other three as inhomogeneous exposure. The evaluation of homogeneity exposure was conducted using Monte Carlo calculations with two simplified models, which were then verified with phantom experiments. Consequently, all of the evaluations reproduced the experimental results, implying that our proposed method would be applicable for actual work conditions in the nuclear industry. Furthermore, the two presumed homogeneous exposure situations were found to be rather inhomogeneous because of the contribution of positrons and the limited source region. The investigation also implies that obtaining the information on the most probable posture of the exposed worker, as well as the existence of the weekly penetrating radiation such as ray as a main source of exposure would be the key for more precise estimation.

Evidence for a narrow resonance at a mass of about 1665 MeV (just above the combined mass of the ground state plus the meson) has been seen in the mass of the Dalitz plot for decay at the Belle experiment. Additional evidence for this resonance is found in the partial-wave analysis (PWA) of data on reactions done independently by several groups, driven by angular distributions of the reaction by the Crystal Ball collaboration. If a narrow resonance exists at this mass, then the conventional quark model cannot explain it, and a possible explanation is that it is a crypto-exotic baryon with a dominant meson-baryon component to its wave function. Therefore we have proposed a definitive experiment for , using the newly built hypTPC detector to establish the existence of the proposed narrow and determine its spin and parity in just two weeks of beamtime at J-PARC (E72). We will discuss these evidences for the proposed resonance and introduce the E72 experiment.

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.

The structure of the hyperon is an important and long-standing issue related to the -nucleus interaction. The J-PARC E31 experiment has been performed to investigate the spectrum shape. Because it is hard to form the directly by a scattering in free space, E31 uses the reaction with an incident kaon momentum of 1 GeV/. We will identify three final states - , , so that the isospin structure of hyperon resonance states produced can be decomposed. The first physics run of the E31 experiment was performed in 2016. To enhance the statistics of the data set, we have performed the second physics run in the beginning of 2018. During the second run of E31, around kaons impacted on the deuteron target.

We aim to study extremely dense matter in heavy-ion collisions at 1-19 AGeV/c at a future project of J-PARC (JPARC-HI). We will search for the first order phase boundary and its critical end point in the QCD phase diagram. We also aim at studying the properties of dense matter related to neutron stars and neutron star mergers, in particular the equation of state (EOS). We expect to produce world's highest rate heavy-ion beams of with the ion species from p to U. We design spectrometers based on a large dipole magnet to measure hadrons, dimuons, and hypernuclei. We evaluate some of key performance of the spectrometers based on detailed simulations.

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.

At J-PARC, a future project with heavy-ion collisions to study high baryon density region of the QCD phase diagram is planned. In very high energy heavy-ion collisions at RHIC and LHC, quark-gluon plasma was discovered at high temperature but very low baryon density. On the other hand, little is known about properties of high baryon density matter which can be explored with lower-energy heavy-ion collisions at J-PARC. We will discuss physics to study QCD phase structures and an experimental plan at J-PARC.

In order to explore phase structures in high-baryon density regime of the QCD phase diagram and study dense quark/hadronic matter which may exist in the core of neutron stars, we proposed a heavy-ion program at J-PARC (J-PARC-HI). In heavy-ion collisions at J-PARC (1-19 AGeV/c), the maximum baryon density reaches 5-10 times the normal nuclear density. We designed heavy-ion acceleration scheme at J-PARC. A heavy-ion beam will be produced in a new heavy-ion injector (a linac and a booster ring) and accelerated in the existing 3-GeV and 50-GeV synchrotrons (Rapid-Cycling Synchrotron and Main Ring). We designed a multi-purpose large acceptance Toroidal magnet spectrometer for lepton, photon, and hadron measurements. We also designed a spectrometer which measures hadrons and nuclei only around beam rapidity region to search for various hypernuclei and strangelets. The latter spectrometer could accept the full beam intensity of J-PARC. In this talk, physics goals, experimental design of the spectrometers, and expected physics results will be discussed.

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.
