Searching for Muon to Electron Conversion in a Muonic Atom - Quest for new physics

Event Start:
Event End:
Event Location:
TRIUMF Auditorium
Speaker:
Yoshitaka Kuno (Osaka U)
Event Information:

Muon to electron conversion is a process which violates the conservation of charged lepton flavor. It is forbidden in the Standard Model, but new physics beyond the SM predict its sizable rate. New experiments under preparation in Japan and the US will start soon in a few years, aiming at improvement of four orders of magnitude, with new innovative muon sources. This talk will discuss Its physics motivation, and an outlook on the experiments.

Special seminar in honour of Toshio Numao.
