Abstract

The Tibet AS-gamma collaboration is constructing 4500 m2 underground muon detector array by using water Cherenkov technique, to form the TIBET AS+MD hybrid array. The muon detector will improve the sensitivity of gamma ray and electron observation above 10 TeV by rejecting the cosmic ray background. In TIBET AS+MD, both water-recycling system and closed container techniques are now being studied. In this paper, the progress and performance of the large Tyvek bag is reported.
