Where muons arrive

You are looking at a silicon detector at the end of the inflector region of the Muon g-2 experiment. This region is the area in which a specialized magnet bends muons after they exit the Muon Delivery Ring (the former Antiproton Debuncher) and enter the Muon g-2 storage ring, which curves to the left in the picture. This detector was used in the Brookhaven National Laboratory's version of this experiment to record how many muons leave the inflector region. Photo: Erik Ramberg, PPD
