Esperimento MEG

Among the many proposed extensions of the SM, some predict that the charged leptons decay violating the leptonic quantum number, a phenomenon known as Lepton Flavor Violation (LFV).  The experiment Muon Electron Gamma (MEG) studies experimentally the muon decay in electron and photon, that would be a sure sign of physics beyond SM.

MEG is a international collaboration at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), Schweiz. The first phase of the experiment improved the existing limit of a factor 20. The second phase is ongoing with the goal of improving the limit of an additional factor of 10.
