The Japanese Collider has set a record luminosity

At electron-positron SuperKEKB Collider in Japan, achieved a record luminosity. The experiments were attended by Russian scientists from the Institute of nuclear physics. G. I. Budker SB RAS and Novosibirsk state University. The results published on the official website of the organization.

The luminosity characterizing the efficiency of collision of the beams, is the number of interactions occurring per unit time. The previous record luminosity is 2.14 x 1034 per square centimeter per second was achieved for a proton-proton Collider LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at the European organization for nuclear research CERN in 2018.

Now, thanks to the implementation of the SuperKEKB Collider of a number of advanced technologies in the field of particle accelerators reached a value of 2.40 x 1034 per square centimeter per second.

The installation of SuperKEKB high energy physics Laboratory (KEK) in Tsukuba, implemented by the international Belle II experiment, which is a continuation of Belle, where for the first time, in parallel with the BaBar experiment at the SLAC laboratory (USA) has found a violation of the law of conservation of combined parity in the decays of B-mesons.

In the Belle II project involves around 1,000 physicists and engineers from 119 universities and laboratories from 26 countries
