Kane County Chronicle, Dec. 22, 2015: The Kane County Chronicle catches up with the Muon g-2 experiment, where scientists, engineers and technicians are currently hard at work shaping the magnetic field inside the 17-ton ring.
It survived a month-long journey over 3,200 miles, and now the delicate and complex electromagnet is well on its way to exploring the unknown. The Muon g-2 ring has successfully cooled down to operating temperature and powered up, proving that even after a decade of inactivity, it remains a vital and viable scientific instrument.
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.
