    The physics opportunities at an asymmetric B Factory operating at the unprecedented luminosity of 10^(36) cm^(–2) s^(–1) are unique and attractive. The accelerator appears to be practical and the challenges of performing a sensitive experiment in this environment can be met

    First CP Violation Results from BABAR

    We present a preliminary measurement of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in B^0-->J/psi K_S and B^0-->psi(2S) K_S decays recorded by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B Factory at SLAC. The data sample consists of 9.0 fb-1 collected at the Upsilon(4S) resonance and 0.8 fb-1 off-resonance. One of the neutral B mesons, produced in pairs at the Upsilon(4S), is fully reconstructed. The flavor of the other neutral B meson is tagged at the time of its decay, mainly with the charge of identified leptons and kaons. The time difference between the decays is determined by measuring the distance between the decay vertices. Wrong-tag probabilities and the time resolution function are measured with samples of fully-reconstructed semileptonic and hadronic neutral B final states. The value of the asymmetry amplitude, sin(2*beta), is determined from a maximum likelihood fit to the time distribution of 120 tagged B^0-->J/psi K_S and B^0-->psi(2S) K_S candidates: sin(2*beta) = 0.12+/-0.37(stat)+/-0.09(syst).Comment: 19 pages, 10 postscript figures, contributed to the Proceedings of ICHEP200

    The tracker and calorimeter systems of the Mu2e experiment

    Get PDF
    The Mu2e experiment at Fermilab is a sensitive search for lepton flavor violation via muon-to-electron conversion in the field of an aluminum nucleus. The requirements for the tracking and calorimeter systems of the experiment, as well as the design of systems that fulfill these requirements, are briefly described
