Muon g–2

Muon g–2

Context:

Recently published consequences of an international experiment called Muon g–2 (g minus two) indicate the chance of new physical science governing the laws of nature.

About the Experiment:

  • It was conducted at the US Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab).
  • The consequences of the experiment, which contemplated a subatomic particle called the muon, don't coordinate with the forecasts of the Standard Model, on which all particle physics is based, and rather reconfirm a disparity that had been identified in an examination 20 years beforehand.

Standard Model:

  • The Standard Model is a thorough hypothesis that predicts the behaviour of the building blocks.
  • It lays out the rules for 6 types of quarks, six leptons, the Higgs boson, three fundamental forces, and how the subatomic particles act affected by electromagnetic forces.
  • The muon is one of the leptons. It is like the electron, however 200 times larger, and substantially more unstable, surviving for a small part of a second.
