Search for charged lepton flavor violation in J-PARC: COMET experiment

Presented by Prof. Yoshi UCHIDA on 4 Jul 2019 from 15:30 to 15:50
Type: oral presentation
Track: Neutrinos and Non-Accelerator Probes of New Physics


As the lepton number and lepton flavor are conserved quantities in Standard Model, observation of charged lepton flavor violation (cLFV) process will provide clues on beyond-Standard model theories. COMET is an experiment at J-PARC, Japan, which will search for neutrinoless conversion of muons into electrons in the field of a nucleus (μ− + N → e− + N); a lepton flavor violating process. The experimental sensitivity goal for this process is order of 10^−15 for Phase-I and 10^−17 for Phase-II experiment, which is a factor of 100–10000 improvements correspondingly over existing limits. Recent progresses in facility and detector development will be presented, along with COMET Phase-I and Phase-II experimental schedule.
