Type: Oral Presentation Session: Muon Physics
Mu2e (muon-to-electron-conversion), an Intensity Frontier experiment at Fermilab set to begin data taking in 2022, will search for flavor violation in charged leptons with a muon decaying to only an electron without any neutrinos. Protons will be accelerated by the 8GeV proton beam before reaching Mu2e’s production target. From there, pions enter an S-shaped Transport Solenoid and travel throug ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Muon Physics
Mu2e will search for the neutrinoless conversion of a muon to an electron in the presence of a nucleus, µ+N(A,Z) -> e+N(A,Z), more commonly known as charged lepton flavor violation (CLFV). A decay of this sort is extremely suppressed in the Standard Model, on the order 10^{-54}. A process of this kind may never be observed in a lab so detecting it would be an unambiguous evidence of new physics. ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: 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 upp ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Muon Physics
The muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab (E989) aims to measure the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon $a_\mathrm{\mu}$ to a precision of 140 parts per billion (ppb). This new measurement will shed light on the 3.5 sigma deviation between Standard Model calculations and the previous measurement (E821) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, and will test Standard Model extensions. The muon g-2 experiment ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Muon Physics
The Mu2e experiment at Fermilab will search for the charged lepton flavor violating process of neutrino-less μ $\to$ e coherent conversion in the field of an aluminum nucleus. About $7\cdot 10^{17}$ muons, provided by a dedicated muon beam line in construction at Fermilab, will be stopped in 3 years in the aluminum target. The corresponding single event sensitivity will be $2.5\cdot10^{-17}$. In ... More

Type: Oral Presentation Session: Muon Physics
This talk will give a brief overview of the Muon g-2 experiment currently running at Fermilab. Muon g-2 seeks to measure the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon to an unprecedented precision of 0.14 ppm, with the goal of testing the Standard Model and possibility providing evidence of physics beyond the Standard Model.
