Title: Conductor Wrapping Machine

Abstract

These superconducting cables will help power the Mu2e experiment when it comes online at Fermilab. Mu2e will search for a previously undiscovered process: a muon (mu) converting solely into an electron (e). Observing muon-to-electron conversion will remove a hurdle to understanding why particles in the same category, or family, decay from heavier to lighter, more stable mass states. Physicists have searched for this since the 1940s - and discovering it is central to understanding what physics lies beyond the Standard Model.
