First particle beams for SuperKEKB accelerator

The new accelerator for fundamental physics research takes its first steps in Tsukuba, Japan. For the first time, particle beams were introduced and let flow freely inside the accelerator’s rings. Once at full capacity, Belle-II - a sophisticated 1500 tons detector, will detect the particles produced from collisions. More than 60 Italian scientists from universities and research centers coordinated by INFN participated to the project. Enea is among these with the activities on the crystal electromagnetic calorimeter. Interview with Stefania Baccaro, ENEA.

The new accelerator for fundamental physics research takes its first steps in Tsukuba, Japan. For the first time, particle beams were introduced and let flow freely inside the accelerator’s rings: electrons and positrons move along two rings 3 km long each, at 7 and 4 billions electronvolt. Once at full capacity, Belle-II - a sophisticated 1500 tons detector result of the collaboration of more than 600 experts - will detect the particles produced from collisions. More than 60 Italian scientists from universities and research centers coordinated by INFN participated to the project. Enea is among these with the activities on the crystal electromagnetic calorimeter.

STEFANIA BACCARO - ENEA

The calorimeter is a crucial element for the success of Belle-II experiment, of which the objective is the detection of rare events that could explain phenomena on subatomic and cosmological scale. ENEA cooperates with INFN on the characterization and optimization of the calorimeter components, verifying their reliability and resistance to radiations. Our Calliope plant and labs at Casaccia research center as well as our thirty-year experience represent a strategic benchmark for interdisciplinary activities on ionizing radiation effects. We can mention many prestigious projects as CMS experiment for the CERN LHC (which contributed to the Higgs boson discovery), ITER fusion reactor, several electronic components qualification for the space missions of ASI (Italian Space Agency) and ESA (European Space Agency), research project on radiation treatment methodologies for cultural heritage sponsored by IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency).
