Belle II Commissioning, First Results, and Future Prospects

Zachary J Liptak

31 July 2019

Abstract: The Belle II experiment has begun its main physics running with a fully instrumented detector in Tsukuba, Japan. With the SuperKEKB asymmetric-energy e+e− collider producing collisions with an ultimate design luminosity of 8×10^35 cm−2 s−1 and a planned 50 ab−1 data set, the Belle II/SuperKEKB facility is poised to become the world’s first Super B Factory. Belle II plans to perform a broad range of high precision measurements in flavor physics while also exploring hints of new physics along with a robust program for dark matter searches. This talk will present the results of the commissioning stages performed to prepare for long-term running in a challenging high-luminosity environment, first results from the Belle II physics program, and future prospects.
