The aim of NA62 (Kaon Factory)
NA62 initially proposed to measure the very rare kaon decay
K+-> pi+ nu nubar at the CERN SPS to extract a 10%
measurement of the CKM parameter |Vtd|.
The experiment aims to collect about 80 K+-> pi+
nu nubar events at the SM prediction with a signal to background ratio
of 10:1 in two years of data taking.
We are using 400 GeV/c protons from the SPS to perform the
There are several challenging aspects for this experiment. They include:
