Particle Physics Seminar

"New MEG Results and Prospects for Improved Searches for Muon and Electron Number Violation in the Charged Sector"

Presented by William Molzon, University of California, Irvine

Thursday, May 4, 2017, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Searches for muon and electron number violation in the charged sector continue to be a sensitive probe of non Standard Model physics. I will give results of the full data-set of the MEG collaboration's search for muons decaying to electron plus photon and describe improvements to the MEG muon beam and apparatus that will improve sensitivity by a factor of ten in the next few years. I will also briefly review other experiments in the planning and early construction phases that are expected to improve sensitivity in related processes in the coming 5-10 years.
