Abstract

KamLAND (the Kamioka Liquid Scintillator Antineutrin Detector) is a one kiloton homogeneous and low background liquid scintillator detector constructed in Kamioka mine. KamLAND has the best sensitivity for low-energy over(ν,̃ )e specific measurement and has been operating since 2002. This experiment discovered a reactor over (ν,̃ )e oscillation, has measured geo- over(ν,̃) e for the first time, and is searching for unknown over(ν,̃) e sources beyond the reactor over(ν,̃ )e energy range. In this proceedings for the Erice school of 2005, a general description of KamLAND, physics results, and future prospects of the project are described.
