Over the last three years UW graduate student Rachel Osofsky has repeatedly spent several months at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), Batavia, IL, to participate in the setup of the new Muon g-2 experiment (FNAL E989). The new Muon g-2 experiment aims to test a tantalizing hint for physics beyond the Standard Model of Particle Physics by improving the predecessor experiment by more than a factor of four. This endeavor is based on highly precise frequency measurements performed... Read more
