High Energy Seminar
A New High-Sensitivity Search for Muon-to-Electron Conversion at Fermilab
Date: Monday, April 5th
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (Coffee and Cookies at 3:45 pm)
Speaker: Dr. Robert Bernstein, FNAL
Abstract: The Mu2e collaboration will search for coherent, neutrino-less conversion
of muons into electrons in the field of a nucleus with a sensitivity
improvement of approximately 10,000 over existing limits. Such a lepton
flavor-violating reaction probes new physics at a scale unavailable by
direct searches at either present or planned high energy colliders. The
physics motivation for Mu2e and the design of the muon beamline and
spectrometer will be presented, along with a scheme by which the
experiment can be mounted in the present Fermilab accelerator complex.
We will also examine the prospects for increased sensitivity of as much
as two orders-of-magnitude at the proposed Fermilab Project X Linac.
