Title: Fermilab Muon g-2 Experiment

Abstract

The Fermilab muon g-2 experiment will measure the muon anomalous magnetic moment $$a_{\mu}$$ to 140 ppb – a four-fold improvement over the earlier Brookhaven experiment. The measurement of $$a_{\mu}$$ is well known as a unique test of the standard model with broad sensitivity to new interactions, particles and phenomena. The goal of 140 ppb is commensurate with ongoing improvements in the SM prediction of the anomalous moment and addresses the longstanding 3.5$$\sigma$$ discrepancy between the BNL result and the SM prediction. In this article I discuss the physics motivation and experimental technique for measuring $$a_{\mu}$$, and the current status and the future work for the project.
