Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Oral Presentation Muon Physics

The Mu2e experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory will study charged lepton flavor violation (CLFV) through the measurement of the ratio of the rate of neutrinoless, coherent conversion of muons into electrons in the field of a nucleus to the rate of muon capture on the nucleus. The goal of the experiment is to achieve a single event sensitivity of 2.8×〖10〗^(-17), leading to an upper limit on the muon conversion rate of 6.7×〖10〗^(-17). Muons will be generated by using a pulsed proton beam on a tungstun target. To achieve and maintain this level of sensitivity out-of-time protons must be suppressed at the 10^-10 level. Extinction is the ratio of out-of-time protons to in-time protons. We will present on the experimental design of the extinction monitor system and the current status of the project.
