Fully operational Gigatracker at NA62

An important milestone has been accomplished by NA62 collaboration with the completion of the three Gigatracker stations. As it can be seen in the picture, high intensity SPS beam can be fully tracked by NA62 with a time resolution of <200 ps. This installation is essential to fully exploit the capabilities of NA62 and opens the door to a 10% measurement of the very rare decay $K^+\to\pi^+\nu\bar{\nu}$<\latex> Read more...

The Physics Department at UCLouvain has been involved for a number of decades in high energy particle physics research, equally strongly on the experimental and instrumental fronts as on the theoretical one. In spite of being located in physically distinct places, all these activities are now brought together within a common organisational structure, the Centre for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3). This structure reinforces the collaboration of these varied components and competences in the physics of the fundamental interactions and the elementary particles.
