Physics Colloquium

"The Muon g-2 Experiment at Fermilab"

Presented by Tammy Walton, FNAL- Leona Woods Lectureship award winner's colloquium

Tuesday, May 1, 2018, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab is measuring the anomalous magnetic dipole moment of the muon with an improved factor of four accuracy (140 ppb). The new measurement is inspired by the > 3s discrepancy between the Brookhaven experimental measurement and Standard Model prediction, where the discrepancy gives hints of new physics beyond the Standard Model. The Fermilab's Muon g – 2 experiment is taking physics data and is projected to accumulate 1 x BNL statistics by the end of the spring 2018 Fermilab's accelerator shutdown. In this presentation, I will discuss the scientific motivation and physics of muon g – 2 experiments and conclude with a snapshot of data results from the beginning of the physics run.
