Abstract

In order to investigate elementary particle phenomena in the early Universe, the BESS-polar experiment is proposed. It will study low-energy antiprotons and search for antinuclei in the galactic cosmic rays at the constant altitude maintained by a scientific balloon. A new superconducting spectrometer is being developed for long-duration balloon flights. In order to extend the detectable energy range of antiprotons down to 100 MeV, the thickness of materials along the trajectory of the incident particle is minimized. The spectrometer will be completed in 2003, and the first long-duration flight is planned in 2004.
