The Magnet Systems Group is back to work in HAB, building the Mu2e transport solenoid magnets. We performed what we believe is the first “critical lift” under the new FESHM 10200 Lift Plans chapter on Wednesday, June 3, using two cranes to rotate test unit TSUN08 from the bore-tube-horizontal warm testing position to the bore-tube-vertical cold testing position.
The Cavalier Daily, Nov. 20, 2019: University physicists are beginning to make their mark on two multimillion dollar experiments in particle physics by contributing their research analyses to experiments at Fermilab for short: the Mu2e muon experiment and the NOvA neutrino experiment. NOvA is under way, and Mu2e is scheduled to begin in 2023.
From University of Virginia, Nov. 4, 2019: University of Virginia physicists are building major components for one of the largest and most complex physics experiments ever conducted in the United States: a $271 million particle physics project at Fermilab called the Muon-to-electron Conversion Experiment, or Mu2e.
In this 2-minute video, electrical engineer Luciano Elementi and company show us how superconducting cable is wrapped for the Mu2e experiment. Mu2e will search for a previously undiscovered process: a muon converting solely into an electron. The cables will help power the experiment when it comes online.
