Mu2e, Mu3e and g-2

Gavin Hesketh (University College)


In the coming years, a series of precision experiments with muons will push the sensitivity to new physics up to 4 orders of magnitude beyond the direct reach of the Large Hadron Collider, with the possibility to find evidence for new physics in the near future. Starting with the Fermilab Muon g-2 experiment, which aims to resolve a 3.7 sigma discrepancy between theory and previous measurements, I will move on to cover two experiments currently under construction that will look for rare muon decays: Mu2e and Mu3e.
