Physics studies. Measurements of RK and Re (2018)

NA62, aka 'The Kaon Factory', is an experiment on the SPS at CERN, aimed to measure the very rare kaon decay K+ → π+ + ν + ν and extract a 10% measurement of the CKM parameter |vtd|. NA62 has started taking data in 2014 and plans to collect about 100 K+ → π+ + ν + ν events if the Standard Model prediction is correct.
