Abstract

MEMPHYS is a proposed 0.5Mton scale Water Cherenkov experiment to be performed deep underground. Possible sites are under study in the European FP7 design study LAGUNA. It is dedicated to nucleon decay, neutrinos from supernovae, solar and atmosph eric neutrinos, as well as neutrinos from a future Super-Beam or @b-Beam to measure the mixing angle @q_1_3, the CP violating phase @d and the mass hierarchy. A small-scale prototype, Memphyno, has been constructed with the purpose of serving as a test be nch for new photodetection and data acquisition solutions, such as grouped readout system.
