Abstract

BESS-Polar II (the 2nd phase of the BESS-Polar spectrometer) has been prepared for the next Antarctic campaign scheduled in December 2007. The aims of the experiment are precise measurements of the low-energy antiproton spectrum and search for cosmologically significant antimatter at this solar minimum period, with 5 times higher sensitivity than the previous measurements in BESS-Polar I. Most of the detector components have been redesigned and upgraded to improve their performance and to increase the data taking period and capacity.
