This year the CDF experiment at Fermilab's Tevatron accelerator has conclusively observed the phenomenon of mixing in the B_s system whereby the B_s meson oscillates between its matter and anti-matter state. I will present the methodology and results of this analysis and discuss its compatibility with the Standard Model predictions.
The experimental particle physics seminar series invites speakers from all over Europe to discuss the latest developments at the LHC, accelerator and non-accelerator based neutrino physics, hardware R&D and astroparticle physics. .
