The NA62 experiment at CERN SPS was designed to measure BR(K+ -> pi+ nu nu-bar) with in-flight decays, a novel technique for this channel. NA62 took its first physics data in 2016, reaching sensitivity to the decay at the Standard Model BR. The experiment collected 10 times more statistics in 2017 and a similar amount of data is expected from the 2018 run. The result on K+ -> pi+ nu nu from the full 2016 data set will be presented and prospects for future improvements will be discussed.
A large sample of charged kaon decays into final states with multiple charged particles was also collected in 2016-2018. The sensitivity to a number of Lepton Flavour and Lepton Number violating K+ decays provided by this data set is an order of magnitude beyond the current state of the art. Results of the search for these processes with a partial NA62 data sample are available for presentation.
