Precise measurements of the anomalous magnetic moment, a = (g - 2)/2, of the muon provide strong tests of the Standard Model, and are more sensitive to physics beyond the Standard Model than measurements of the electron anomalous magnetic moment. The most recent measurement of the muon magnetic moment at Brookhaven E821 has hinted at new physics, with its result differing from theoretical...

The Muon g-2 experiment uses electrostatic quadrupoles for vertical focusing in the muon storage ring, where higher-order electric field multipoles produce non linearities in the restoring forces. Top/bottom quadrupole plates are aligned to 0.5 mm and side plates are aligned to 0.75 mm over long length scales to limit the higher-order multipoles. Plate alignment techniques and an electric...

The Muon g-2 experiment uses electrostatic quadrupoles for vertical focusing in the muon storage ring. High voltage (HV) feedthroughs provide electrical contact across the vacuum-air interface. Trapped electrons drift in the direction of the cross product between the electric and magnetic fields. These electrons drift along the quadrupole HV leads and eventually damage the HV feedthrough...

The Muon $g-2$ Experiment at Fermilab (E989) has been designed to determine the muon anomalous magnetic moment to a precision of 140 parts per billion (ppb), a four-fold improvement over the Brookhaven E821 measurement. Key to this precision goal is the determination of the magnetic field of the experiment's muon storage ring to better than 100 ppb. The magnetic field will be measured...

This talk will give a concise, graduate-student-level overview of the Mu2e experiment. It will describe the goal of the Mu2e experiment (to search for neutrino-less muon-electron conversion), and why this process would indicate physics beyond the Standard Model. It will further detail the implementation and design of the experiment: (1) a brief description of how the...

The Mu2e experiment in Fermilab will search for the coherent neutrinoless conversion of a muon into an electron in the field of an aluminum nucleus, improving sensitivity by 4 orders of magnitude over existing limits and indirectly probing new physics beyond the reach of current or planned high energy colliders. To achieve a single conversion event sensitivity better than 3e-17, the experiment...

The international Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) is a high energy physics experiment located at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in U.K. The aim of MICE is to demonstrate muon beam cooling for the first time. The process of reducing beam phase-space volume is known as beam cooling and this process is necessary for a beam of muons because of the large phase-space volume that they...

We are potentially standing at the precipice in the quest for discovery of New Physics (NP) beyond the Standard Model (SM) by performing a precision test of lepton universality. Experiment E36 conducted at J- PARC in Japan is testing lepton universality in the RK = Γ(Ke2)/Γ(Kμ2) ratio. In the SM, the ratio of leptonic K+ decays is highly precise with an uncertainty of δRK /RK = 4 · 10−4. Any...
