First results from the Muon g – 2 Experiment at Fermilab

Tuesday September 28, 2021
2:00 pm

 Presenter:  James Mott, Fermilab
 Series:  Nuclear, Particle, Astroparticle and Cosmology (NUPAC) Seminars
 Abstract:  The Muon g – 2 Experiment searches for evidence of new particles and forces by making precise measurements of the magnetic moment of the muon. By comparing the experimental value with theoretical predictions, the experiment conducts a stringent test of the Standard Model (SM). A difference between the two could be a possible indication of new physics. This talk will present the first results from the Muon g – 2 Experiment at Fermilab, which has measured a value 3.3 standard deviations away from the SM prediction. When combined with a previous experimental result from Brookhaven National Laboratory the difference increases to 4.2 standard deviations.
