Particle Physics Seminar

"Recent Results from the BaBar Experiment"

Presented by David Norvil Brown, University of Louisville

Thursday, October 15, 2015, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The BaBar Experiment was initially designed to study CP-Violation in B-meson decays. However, due to the general-purpose and high-quality design of the detector, it has been utilized for studies of many topics beyond the weak flavor realm. I will present a selection of recent results from BaBar, including topics from B physics and beyond. The results selected include a first observation of a mode which is an interesting piece in the puzzle about baryonic B-meson decays; a measurement of time-dependent asymmetries in a B-meson decay; a measurement of Collins asymmetries in u, d, and s quark fragmentation; and a search for long-lived particles predicted in many beyond the Standard Model theories.
