NA62 - NA62 Detector

Program Description: The main aim of the NA62 experiment is to study rare kaon decays. Understanding these decays will help physicists to check some of the predictions the Standard Model makes about short-distance interactions. To make beams rich in kaons, the NA62 team fires high-energy protons from the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) into a stationary beryllium target. The collision creates a beam which transmits almost one billion particles per second, about 6% of which are kaons. Understanding with precision the relations between quarks is one constructive way to check the consistency of the Standard Model.
