From Argonne National Laboratory, April 19, 2018: Scientists from Argonne National Laboratory and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, along with collaborators from over 25 other institutions, are recreating a previous experiment with much higher precision.
From Live Science, Feb. 8, 2018: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln writes an article for Live Science on the Muon g-2 experiment and how the results could potentially punch a hole in the reigning Standard Model of particle physics.
From Science, Jan. 25, 2018: Muon g-2 hopes to firm up tantalizing hints from an earlier incarnation of the experiment, which suggested that the particle is ever so slightly more magnetic than predicted by the prevailing standard Model of particle physics.
The 50-foot-wide superconducting electromagnet at the center of the experiment saw its first beam of muon particles from Fermilab’s accelerators, kicking off a three-year effort to measure just what happens to those particles when placed in a stunningly precise magnetic field. The answer could rewrite scientists’ picture of the universe and how it works.
From Nature, April 11, 2017: Fermilab’s Muon g-2 experiment will measure the muon’s magnetic moment with unparalleled precision, perhaps revealing unknown virtual particles.
