The Belle II Experiment: status and physics prospects

Jake Bennett

03 January 2018

Abstract: The Belle II experiment is now under construction at the KEK laboratory in Japan. This project represents a substantial upgrade to both the Belle detector and the KEKB accelerator. The Belle II experiment will record 50/ab of data, a factor of 50 more than that recorded by Belle. This large data set, combined with the low backgrounds and high trigger efficiencies characteristic of an $e^+e^-$ experiment, should provide unprecedented sensitivity to new physics signatures in $B$ and $D$ meson decays, and in $\tau$ lepton decays. The experiment is scheduled to begin physics running in 2018.
