GSE Opportunities: Muon Physics Teach-in - Searching for new particles or forces

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: GSE Opportunities

We are delighted to be welcoming British scientist Dr Alex Keshavarzi, Research Associate from the University of Manchester and Fermilab to a teach in session to discuss the exciting and long-awaited first results from the Muon g-2 experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Chicago. In this talk, Alex will present the experimental strategy and exciting recent results, highlighting the UK's integral involvement now and in the future.

Recently, the first results of the Muon g-2 Experiment at Fermilab (USA) have been reported, which has found compelling evidence of new particles or forces interacting with particles called muons. Should the results be confirmed with increased precision, it will be the first direct confirmation of new physics beyond current theories of the fundamental structure of the universe.

The session will begin with Alex discussing the above, with plenty of opportunity for Q&A, so come prepared with questions to ask. To attend the teach in on the 30th April 2021 12:00-13:00, please email Emma.Bould@go-science.gov.uk to register.
