Belle II Technical Design Report

Source: arXiv

ABSTRACT The Belle detector at the KEKB electron-positron collider has collected almost 1 billion Y(4S) events in its decade of operation. Super-KEKB, an upgrade of KEKB is under construction, to increase the luminosity by two orders of magnitude during a three-year shutdown, with an ultimate goal of 8E35 /cm^2 /s luminosity. To exploit the increased luminosity, an upgrade of the Belle detector has been proposed. A new international collaboration Belle-II, is being formed. The Technical Design Report presents physics motivation, basic methods of the accelerator upgrade, as well as key improvements of the detector. Comment: Edited by: Z. Dole\v{z}al and S. Uno

    ABSTRACT: Lepton flavor violations in charged lepton give good signatures for the new physics. We review recent searches for lepton flavor violation in tau decays at B-factories. In these searches, optimization for background reduction is important to obtain high sensitivity. No evidence for these decays is observed and 90% confidence level upper limits have been set on the branching fractions at the O(10^{-8}) level.

    ABSTRACT: Measurement of the CKM phase gamma in B->DK decays can be potentially performed with high precision due to low theoretical uncertainties. However, the precision measurement requires very large experimental samples of B decays. This report covers prospects for gamma measurement at the future e+e- facilities and upgraded LHCb detector.

    ABSTRACT: This is a review of the SuperB project, covering the accelerator, detector, and highlights of the broad physics programme. SuperB is a flavour factory capable of performing precision measurements and searches for rare and forbidden decays of $B_{u,d,s}$, $D$, $\tau$ and $\Upsilon({\mathrm{nS}})$ particles. These results can be used to test fundamental symmetries and expectations of the Standard Model, and to constrain many different hypothesised types of new physics. In some cases these measurements can be used to place constraints on the existence of light dark matter and light Higgs particles with masses below $10GeV/c^2$. The potential impact of the measurements that will be made by SuperB on the field of high energy physics is also discussed in the context of data taken at both high energy in the region around the \Upsilon({\mathrm{4S}})$, and near charm threshold.
