Belle II Resumes Operations – CERN Courier

The Belle II detector at SuperKEKB in Japan recorded its first e+e– collisions since the facility underwent a scheduled long shutdown on 20 February. This marked the start of Run 2 and came after the facility’s shutdown, during which several enhancements were implemented to handle expected increases in luminosity and backgrounds from the beams.

The fully instrumented Belle II detector had its first collisions recorded in March 2019. The primary goal of Belle II is to uncover new phenomena through precise analysis of B mesons and other particles produced by the SuperKEKB accelerator. With a long-term objective of accumulating a dataset 50 times larger than that of the former Belle experiment, Belle II is set to push the boundaries of particle physics research.

The start of Run 2 was marked by excitement and anticipation as researchers and scientists eagerly awaited the results of the first e+e– collisions since the facility’s shutdown. This milestone represents a major step forward for the Belle II experiment and the SuperKEKB accelerator, setting the stage for groundbreaking discoveries and advancements in the field of particle physics. The dedication and hard work of the teams involved in the upgrades and preparations for Run 2 have paid off, and the scientific community looks forward to
