UH BES Group

The University of Hawaii High Energy Physics Group is part of the Beijing Electron Spectrometer (BES) experiment, which is an international collaboration involving many US and Chinese universities and laboratories. The BES detector, located at the Bejing Electron Positron Collider (BEPC) at the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) in Beijing, records information from electron positron interactions in the tau-charm energy region from 3 - 5 GeV. This region provides rich and unique opportunities for studies of Tau leptons, D mesons, J/psi, and psi prime events .
