Description

We describe the KLM (KLong-Muon) detector for the Belle II detector at the SuperKEKB accelerator located at KEK in Tsukuba, Japan. The endcap RPC (Resistive Plate Chamber) detectors used for Belle have been entirely replaced with a scintillator-based system readout out with Si PMTs. The inner two layers of the barrel also been replaced. The readout using "oscilloscope on a chip" based readout electronics will be discussed as well as expected physics performance.
