Abstract

 

I will describe the BaBar detector, motivation to build it, and some major results, which include the observation of the CP violation in the B-Bbar system. I will then describe a new particle identification detector development, called Fast Focusing DIRC, which our group is working for possible application at a future Super B-factory.
