experiment observed large CP violation in the decays of the B mesons and confirmed the Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism for CP violation. Belle's contribution was explicitly recognized in the 2008 Nobel Prize citation.
The experiment operated at the
accelerator, a high luminosity asymmetric
energy e+ e- machine.
The Belle experiment has now entered the intense analysis phase and is
preparing physics analyses from the 1 ab-1 data sample.
Hawaii has a unique role in Belle and the upcoming Belle II experiment.
There are now opportunities for new talented graduate students in this experiment.
KEKB accelerator, a high luminosity (2 x 1034 /cm2/sec)
asymmetric energy e+ e- machine.
The group constructed the
TOF system, designed the SVD2 beam pipe,
constructed and operated the
wrote TOF reconstruction software, contributes to the tracking software
and is now preparing to construct the
for Belle II
as well as writing reconstruction software, checking data quality,
analysing data, publishing physics papers and operating the experiment.
The group consists of faculty members
