B_s Mixing at CDF

  • Event time: 2:00pm until 3:00pm
  • Event date: 26th October 2006
  • Speaker: SinĂ©ad Farrington (University of Liverpool)
  • Location: Room 6324,

Event details

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.
