New results from the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab


The Muon g-2 experiment searches for telltale signs of new particles and forces by examining the muon’s interaction with a surrounding magnetic field. By precisely determining the magnetic moment of the muon and comparing with similarly exact theoretical predictions, the experiment is sensitive to new physics lurking in the subatomic quantum fluctuations surrounding the muon. In 2021, the Muon g-2 collaboration at Fermilab presented their first results based on one year of data taking. This new result from the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab is based on the analysis of year 2 and 3 of data taking. The experimental result will be presented by James Mott, Fermilab experimental physicist and member of the Muon g-2 scientific collaboration.

Code of conduct: The Wine and Cheese is a scientific seminar and thus questions and discussion are welcome. The goal of discussion is to enhance the quality and understanding of the science for the whole community. Out of consideration for all, even when questions are not straightforward, we will insist that they be asked and answered with respect and civility. We value voices of all backgrounds, accents, pitches and degrees of softness, both among our speakers and in the audience. Scientific claims are judged by their content and rigor, and not by the demeanor of their proponent
