Belle II Marks Major Milestone with First Collisions Since Shutdown, Pushing Boundaries of Particle Physics Research

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 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 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 in the Belle II control room on 20 February 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.

During this time, several enhancements were made to improve data collection performance, including an improved vertex detector and an upgraded beam pipe at
