The Fermilab Muon g-2 Experiment
Presented by Prof. Samuel HENRY on 25 Jul 2014 from 15:30 to 15:50
Type: Lepton Flavour Violation and Neutrinos
Track: Lepton Flavour Violation and Neutrinos
The anomalous magnetic dipole moment of the muon can be both measured and computed to very high precision, making it a powerful probe to test the standard model and search for new physics such as SUSY. The previous measurement by the Brookhaven E821 experiment found a 3.6 standard deviation discrepancy from the predicted value. The new g-2 experiment at Fermilab will improve the precision by a factor of four through a factor of twenty increase in statistics and a reduced systematic uncertainty with an upgraded apparatus. The experiment will also carry out an improved measurement of the muon electric dipole moment. Construction at Fermilab is well underway.
