Belle II: flavour physics at the intensity frontier

Dr. Jim Libby, IIT Madras

Location Online
SuperKEKB is an intensity-frontier particle accelerator that is designed to reach an instantaneous luminosity of 6 x 10^35 cm^-2s^-1. Operating at a centre-of-mass energy corresponding to the peak of the Upsilon(4S) resonance, the goal is to accumulate a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 50 ab^-1. The sample will contain billions of B mesons, charm hadrons and tau leptons that the Belle II experiment will use to search for rare decays and perform precision measurements of flavour observables. These searches and measurements allow indirect probes of physics beyond the standard model. This talk will motivate the Belle II physics programme, before briefly describing SuperKEKB and the Belle II experiment. Some of the first results related to charm decays, measurements of the Unitarity Triangle and the so-called B anomalies will be presented.
