Hawaii plays an important

role in each of these areas

Solar n problem

Solar n-problem

  • Super-K + SNO

    = LMA solution

    • Ideal for KamLAND

      (this month???)

Sept 12 2002 DOE Site Visit Overview Stephen L. Olsen


N oscillation n mass

n-oscillation / n-mass

  • K2K consistent

    with Super-K

  • Non nm-nt oscillation

    scenarios ruled out

  • All citation records

    are held by Super-K!!

B meson physics with belle

B-meson physics with Belle

  • CPV established in B0B0 system

  • Asymmetries seen in Bp+p-

    1st observation

  • EW penguin (Xsl+l-)

    1st observation

  • hc’ discovered

R scan and j y physics bes

R-scan and J/ & y’ physics (BES)

  • Completed R-scan analysis

    • Factor of ~3 improved precision

    • MHiggsup by 50%

  • 58M J/ & 14M y’ events

    • New particles/resonances

New directions for hep

New directions for HEP

  • Radio detection of UHE cosmic n’s

    • Askaryan effect verified

      over 4 orders of magnitude

    • New limits on diffuse

      UHE cosmic n’s

    • ANITA approved

Sept 12 2002 DOE Site Visit Overview Stephen L. Olsen


New types of radiation detectors

New types of radiation detectors

  • 3-dim pixel detectors for LHC/NLC

    • 3-d sensors work

    • They’re fast & rad hard

    • ADRP award

    • Important non-HEP applications

      e.g. Molecular Biology

Impact

Impact

  • GLUE/ FORTE /ANITA / SalSa / …

    • initiator / spokesperson: Gorham

  • Belle

    • cospokesperson: Olsen analysis coord: Browder

    • largest non-KEK group in Belle

    • ~6 of Belle’s 1st 40 papers were 100% Hawaii efforts

      (plus many Hawaii contributions to the others)

  • BES

    • cospokesperson: Harris R-scan PhD stdnt: Kong

  • Super-K / KamLAND

    • council: Learned / upmu leader: Matsuno

    • KamLAND calibration: Gorham / Gullian

Further future

Further future

  • Gorham is launching a new

    field of UHE CR detection

  • Browder is a leader in the

    quest for Super B-factories

  • Harris is co-leader of the

    BESIII/BEPC initiative

  • We’re recruiting an Asst (Assoc?) Prof
