Diamond detectors for radiation monitoring and beam abort at Belle II

XXVI Cracow EPIPHANY Conference, LHC Physics: Standard Model and Beyond

Abstract: The Belle II experiment will be at the forefront of indirect searches for non-SM physics using billions of heavy quarks and tau-leptons produced in high-intensity 10 GeV electron-positron collisions from the SuperKEKB collider. The intense beams needed to achieve the required precisions in measurement results are associated with strong beam-background radiation that may damage the inner detectors. A dedicated radiation-monitoring and beam-abort system based on artificial diamond sensors ensures protection and safe data taking conditions. This talk will briefly outline the system and illustrate the operational experience and performance during the 2019 first physics run.
