A search for new interactions at Belle II using leptons

Project description

Pushing physics beyond the Standard Model

The Standard Model of particle physics describes the fundamental interactions and components of matter. It predicts that leptons of different generations interact in the same way. However, several recent experiments in the quark and lepton flavour sectors have shown inconsistencies regarding what we hold to be true about the Standard Model. Referred to as flavour anomalies, these deviations seem to violate the lepton flavour universality and could be the link between ordinary and dark matter. The EU-funded InterLeptons project will investigate this using data of the Belle II experiment at the Super-KEKB laboratory in Japan. Advanced techniques and deep learning tools will analyse events surrounding leptons and large missing energy in the final states to identify signals of the Belle II experiment, bringing physics one step closer to surpassing the Standard Model.
