Status: In-progress

Study of Rare Charged Kaon Decays in Experiments
at the CERN SPS

Leaders:     V.D. Kekelidze
Yu.K. Potrebenikov

Participating Countries and International Organizations:
Belgium, Bulgaria, CERN, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, United Kingdom, USA.

Scientific Programme:
Realization of the NA62 Project allows to clarify CP-violation problem, to measure precisely very rare charged kaon decay to charged pions and two neutrinos, to carried out a search for supersymmetric particles and their partners with a goal to observe a physics beyond the Standard Model. In addition, characteristics of rare kaon and hyperon decays will be improved. A high resolution straw-detectors of the NA62 magnetic spectrometer working in vacuum will be supported during experimental runs. Software for simulation, data processing and analysis will be developed.

Expected main results in 2017:
  • Data taking by the NA62 set-up and data analysis will be carried out.

  • Software for the simulation of magnetic spectrometer and full set-up will be developed; system for detector calibration and event reconstruction will be upgraded; common software of the experiment will be developed.

  • Calibration, testing a nd support of the NA62 straw detectors will be carried out.
