The experiment aims to measure the very rare kaon decay K+
nu nubar in order to extract a 10% measurement of the CKM parameter |Vtd
|. The experiment will use 400 GeV/c protons from the SPS and aims to collect about 80 to 100 K+
nu nubar events at the SM prediction with a signal to background ratio of 10:1 in two years of data taking.
Talks and Documentation
Currently, David Britton and DanProtopopescu
are directly involved
in this experiment.
Our group, in collaboration with several UK sites, runs NA62's Monte Carlo simulations
on the grid, with the aim to provide around 108
events by late 2012. How they are done is documented in here
. We started production in early June 2012:
