First Physics Results from Belle II@SuperKEKB

28 July 2020
SLAC FPD Experimental Seminar

Abstract: I will present a few highlights from the latest Belle II Physics Run, which took place in spring and summer 2020 during the global pandemic and just concluded a month ago. The peak luminosity was 2.4 x 10^34/cm^2/sec, which is a new world record. The focus will be on the first physics results from Belle II. The first Belle II publications are on topics in the Dark Sector. At ICHEP2020 in Prague, Belle II will show initial B physics, charm physics and tau physics results as well. I will conclude with a few comments on the road ahead to design luminosity and cutting edge physics (and the upgrades to SuperKEKB and Belle II that are needed).
