The Belle Collaboration is an international group of more than 400 physicists and engineers from 62 institutes across 16 different countries dedicated to the investigation of CP-violation. The University of Melbourne Experimental Particle Physics group, in collaboration with the University of Sydney, has been substantially involved since the initial stages of the Belle Experiment. We have significantly contributed to the design, construction and monitoring of the Silicon Vertex Detector, a key component of the Belle detector, as well as having a number of students participate in the collection and analysis of the data collected.
