NA48/2 is a CERN experiment at the SPS proton synchrotron.

ABSTRACT

    A high statistics study of charged kaon decays is proposed using a novel design for simultaneous K+/K- beams, and an upgraded NA48 setup. The main goal is to measure the CP-violating asymmetry in the linear slope of the $K^{\pm}\rightarrow \pi^+ \pi^- \pi^{\pm}$ decays with an accuracy of 2.2 x 10-4. In addition, the analogous CP-violating asymmetry will be measured in $K^{\pm}\rightarrow \pi^0 \pi^0 \pi^{\pm}$ decays. More than 106 Ke4 decays will be accumulated, which allow to measure the scattering length parameter a00 with an accuracy better than 0.01, and some other rare decays of charged kaons will be studied as well.
