Belle II/SuperKEKB First Collisions and the Path Ahead

Tom Browder (University of Hawai'i at Manoa)

30 August 2018
University of Hawaii Physics Colloquium

Abstract: Recent results now suggest that flavor physics could be an alternative path to breaking the Standard Model of particle physics. I will review the startup of Belle II and SuperKEKB, which began in April 2018, as well as the the long term physics program of Belle II. Belle II will soon become the leading experiment for exploration of the physics of B mesons, D mesons and tau leptons.

Keyword(s): Belle II ; SuperKEKB ; First Collisions ; Pilot Run ; Universal Spectrometer ; PID ; Vertexing ; Calibration Signals
Note: 1 hour. Somewhat biased towards Hawaii contributions. Can be adapted or modified for colloquia at other universities and institutes.
