From Fermilab Today via Quantum Diaries: Mandy Rominsky on the muon g-2 Experiment

Mandy Rominsky

“What is the muon g-2 experiment? Okay, some jargon, just to sound cool. The g-2 experiment’s goal is to measure the difference between the gryomagnetic ratio (spin/angular momentum) and the Bohr magneton. And what does that mean? It’s basically measuring intrinsic properties (such as spin and angular momentum) of a particle….”

Fermilab’s planned muon g-2 experiment will use the storage ring that was used in a previous muon g-2 experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory.

i2
A similar helicopter will carry the ring, just as the tank is carried here, from Brookhaven National Laboratory a portion of the way to Fermilab.

The muon g-2 collaboration at Fermilab during a March meeting.

O.K., that is all you will get from me. I hope that it is enough to impel your to read Mandy’s excellent and informative post.
