Physics Seminar: Charged Lepton Flavor Violation at Fermilab: The Mu2e Experiment
October 12, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Kevin Lynch,
York College of CUNY
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, other CLFV signatures accessible to our apparatus, our progress on design and construction to date, and prospects for the future.
Faculty and students are welcome.
