Experiments on rare processes at TRIUMF

Conference:

Abstract

Since it first delivered high-intensity beams in 1975, TRIUMF has had a program of research in particle physics based upon the study of rare processes. The interest for these kind of activities is based upon the testing of the successful standard model of electroweak interactions, with the hope of getting a glimpse at physics beyond the standard model. I shall describe four of the recent experiments in this field which are either in the final stages of analysis or in the data-taking phase. These are: the measurement of the {pi} {yields} e{nu}/{pi} {yields} {mu}{nu} branching ratio as a test of electron-muon universality; the search for muonium-antimuonium conversion searching for doubly charged Higgs-like objects; the first measurement of radiative muon capture on hydrogen and measurement of the induced pseudoscalar coupling constant g{sub p}; and, a search for the decay K{sup +} {yields} {pi}{sup +} + nothing conducted by a TRIUMF team at the Brookhaven Alternating Gradient Synchrotron, which tests predictions of the standard model in a pure second-order weak process.
