Searching for Muon to Electron Conversion in a Muonic Atom - Quest for new physics 
 
Thu, Jan 30, 2020,   02:00 PM at Seminar Hall 31, 2nd Floor, Main Building

Prof. Yoshitaka Kuno
Osaka University

Abstract
Muon to electron conversion is a process which violates the conservation of
charged lepton flavor. It is forbidden in the Standard Model, but new physics
beyond the SM predict its sizable rate. New experiments under preparation
in Japan and the US will start soon in a few years, aiming at improvement of
four orders of magnitude, with new innovative muon sources. This talk will
discuss Its physics motivation, and an outlook on the experiments, in particular
the COMET experiment in Japan.
