Abstract content

The SuperKEKB project, to increase 40 times higher luminosity ever achieved in KEKB, was approved in 2010. Since then, we have been conducting the detector and the accelerator upgrade programs. For the SuperKEKB accelerator, new tunnels for a damping ring are being built and other accelerator components are now in full production stage. For the Belle II detector, various detector elements are in the middle of the construction phase. For instance, CDC wire stringing has been just completed and new scintillator-based counters for KL and muon cather were installed into the Belle II barrel structure last November. We will further gear up our construction speed. In my talk, recent progress from the Belle II detector as well as the SuperKEKB accelerator construction will be presented.
