Latest NA62 results on the search for K->pi nu nu and prospects for a neutral pion Dalitz decay measurement

Tom Bache (Birmingham University)


The NA62 experiment at CERN collected a large sample of charged kaon decays in 2016-2018. This sample provides sensitivities to rare decays with branching ratios as low as 10-11. The latest results on the very rare K+ → pi+ nu nu decay, as well as prospects for a measurement of the neutral pion Dalitz decay (pi0 → e+ e- gamma), will be presented.
