The Mu2e Experiment at Fermilab

Speaker: Kevin Lynch, York College, CUNY

When: February 16, 2017 (Thu), 03:30PM to 04:30PM (add to my calendar)
Location: PRB 595

This event is part of the High Energy Experiment Seminar Series.

The Mu2e Experiment at Fermilab will search for the coherent, neutrinoless conversion of a muon to an electron in the field of an atomic nucleus. Such charged lepton flavor violating events have never been observed, but are predicted to occur in many Beyond the Standard Model scenarios at rates accessible to our experiment. I outline the physics and key issues for the experiment, our progress on design and construction to date, and prospects for the future.
