Dr. Romulus Godang


My research interests are the precision measurements of the elements of CKM matrix aimed for understanding the source of asymmetry and behavior between matter and anti-matter including CP violation, testing the Standard Model, and discovering New Physics. Experiments tell us that for every fundamental particle there exists an anti-particle. The big bang is almost certainty produced particles and anti-particles in equal numbers. However, our observations indicate that we live in a universe of matter, not anti-matter. There must be some other undiscovered phenomenon that makes matter and anti-matter behave differently. Its source may lie in the properties of the Higgs Boson, SUper-SYmmetry, Gravitons, Extra Dimensions, Dark Matter, or New Particles. My current research activities are at the Belle II and BABAR experiments.

    Current Experiments

    • The Belle II experiment is located at SuperKEKB, High Energy Accelerator Research Organization, in Japan. The SuperKEKB project is our response to the challenge of solving Nature's fundamental puzzles by upgrading the KEKB electron-positron collider and the Belle detector.The KEKB collider has been a leader in the race to provide the world's highest luminosity. The next target is 40 times greater than KEKB's record by the upgrade to SuperKEKB and Belle II. The target luminosity is 8x1035 cm-2s-1 and this improvement allows us to discover new physics beyond the Standard Model. The Super B Factory at SuperKEKB is an open international project with unprecedented luminosity. The Belle II Collaboration consists of 500 physicists and engineers from more than 95 institutions in 22 countries from all over the world. The primary goals of Belle II experiment are to investigate New Physics by studying B mesons, D mesons, and tau leptons.

    • The BABAR experiment at SLAC, National Accelerator Center, at Stanford University in California, USA. The primary goals of this experiment are to study of CP asymmetries in B mesons decay and to measure the precise fundamental parameters in the Standard Model. The BABAR is an international collaboration that consists of 650 physicists and engineers from 75 institutions in 10 countries.
    • Previous Experiments

      • The CMS experiment at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. This experiment is in the design and construction phase, and will start taking data in 2007. The main goals are to answer the basic questions those are related to a discovery of Higgs boson, supersymmetric particles, mini black holes, gravitons. Currently there are 3600 people working for CMS, 3000 of which are scientists and engineers. These people come from 183 institutes in 38 countries, spanning Europe, Asia, America, and Australia.
      • The Neutrino Factory and Muon Collider in conjunction mainly with Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), Brookhaven National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, CERN, KEK, Science and Technology Facilities Council, and INFN. The primary goal of this research is to measure the physics parameters describing neutrino mixing, and in particular the prospects of observing and measuring CP violation in the lepton sector. This collaboration consists of 135 scientists and engineers.
      • The MICE experiment at Accelerator Science and Technology Centre in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. This experiment is designed and constructed to show a section of cooling channel capable of giving the desired performance for a Neutrino Factory. The leptonic CP violation in the lepton sector is a key ingredient to explain the mystery of the baryon anti-baryon asymmetry in our universe. This collaboration consists of 140 scientists and engineers from 7 countries.
