Description:

Title: New Physics at Bell II

Speaker: Bryan Fulsom, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory 
 

Abstract: The first generation of B-Factories, BaBar and Belle, operated over the previous decade and produced many world-leading measurements related to flavor physics. Their discoveries contributed to the awarding of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physics.

The Belle II experiment, now underway at the KEK laboratory in Japan, is a substantial upgrade of both the Belle detector and the KEKB accelerator. It aims to collect 50 times more data than existing B-Factory samples. This will provide unprecedented sensitivity to new physics signatures in the flavor sector.

This talk will present the upgrade efforts of the Belle II experiment and the physics opportunities it will provide.
