AB - Many applications use uniform magnetic fields to deflect charged particles into accurately known orbits. It is shown that particles with a magnetic dipole moment will also suffer an anomalous deflection in such fields if their energy is higher than a certain threshold. The closeness of the electron`s g-factor to 2 leads to a sizeable decrease in its threshold energy, to such an extent that the effect could play a significant role in current high-energy accelerators. 18 refs.
