The Mu2e experimental hall is not your normal building. It has nooks, crannies, feedthroughs and labyrinths to accommodate the S-shaped apparatus and the multiple systems required for safe and efficient operations.
The forthcoming Mu2e experiment at Fermilab will kidnap muons and trap them in aluminum atoms. But what exactly happens when you shoot a muon at an aluminum foil? While Mu2e is under construction, its scientists are already getting some valuable answers from a smaller accomplice: AlCap.
