Title: Design Studies for a 10{sup 36} SuperB-Factory

Abstract

A Super B Factory, an asymmetric e{sup +}e{sup -} collider with a luminosity of 10{sup 36} cm{sup -2}s{sup -1}, can provide a sensitive probe of new physics in the flavor sector of the Standard Model. The success of PEP-II and KEKB in producing unprecedented luminosity with unprecedented short commissioning time has taught us about the accelerator physics of asymmetric e{sup +}e{sup -} colliders in a new parameter regime. It appears to be possible to build on this success to advance the state of the accelerator art by building a collider at a luminosity approaching 10{sup 36} cm{sup -2}s{sup -1}. Such a collider would produce an integrated luminosity of 10,000 fb{sup -1} (10 ab{sup -1}) in a running year. Design studies are underway to arrive at a complete parameter set based on a collider in the PEP-II tunnel but with an upgraded RF system (perhaps a higher frequency) and an upgraded interaction region [1-6].
