Exotic quarkonium physics prospects at Belle~II

Jake Bennett

16 June 2019

Abstract: The Belle~II experiment at the SuperKEKB energy-asymmetric $e^{+}e^{−}$ collider is a substantial upgrade of the B~factory facility at KEK in Tsukuba, Japan. It aims to record a factor of 50 times more data than its predecessor. The experiment completed a commissioning run in 2018, and began full operation in early 2019. Belle II is uniquely capable of studying the so-called ``XYZ'' particles: heavy exotic hadrons consisting of more than three quarks. First discovered by Belle, these now number in the dozens, and represent the emergence of a new category within quantum chromodynamics. This talk will present the prospects of Belle~II to explore exotic quarkonium physics.
