Physics Colloquium

"First results of the Fermilab muon g-2 experiment"

Presented by Vladimir Tishchenko, BNL

Friday, April 9, 2021, 11:00 am — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)

Abstract: Nearly two decades ago, the Brookhaven muon g-2 experiment measured the muon magnetic anomaly to a precision of 540 ppb. The central value of the anomaly is more than three standard deviations away from the Standard Model prediction. Is it a sign of new physics or a fluctuation? To answer this, a new experiment has been developed at Fermilab which uses the Brookhaven storage ring with new muon beam and detectors. I will describe the experiment, data analysis emphasizing systematic accuracy, and present the first result which has precision slightly better than the Brookhaven measurement.
