Rare Decays with Missing Energy at the Belle II Detector (student talk)

Feb 18, 2018, 9:30 AM


Ms Hannah Wakeling (McGill University)


The Belle II detector is a competitive, perhaps unique, environment in which to study rare $B$ decays with missing energy to a sensitivity that would exhibit indirect New Physics effects. From a $B$-$\bar{B}$ meson pair that has been produced in the SuperKEKB $B$-factory, one $B$ meson can be can be fully reconstructed through powerful $B$-tagging, which in turn provides strong constraints for the other $B$ meson. This is an ideal environment in which rare decays with missing energy can be measured. The possible missing energy decays will be examined with a focus on the decay $B \rightarrow \tau \nu$, which - with the full Belle II data set ($50\,\mbox{ab}^{-1}$) - can be probed at unprecedented precision.
