Abstract

The rationale for pursuing beauty physics at the SSC in a fixed target configuration is described. The increased beauty production cross section at the SSC, combined with high interaction rate capability of the proposed detector, results in 1010–11 produced BB events per year. The long decay length of the B hadrons (≌10 cm) allows direct observation of B decays in the high resolution silicon microstrip vertex detector. To optimize the operation of the proposed beauty spectrometer and the SSC, parasitic extraction of attendant or artificially generated large amplitude protons using crystal channeling is proposed and explored. The large sample of fully reconstructed B events allows detailed studies various CP violating decays with requisite statistics to confront the standard model. The CP physics potentials of the proposed experiment is evaluated and compared with alternative approaches, such as asymmetric e+e− B Factories and specialized hadron colliders.
