Description

The goal of the Mu2e experiment is to improve on the existing experimental limits for the neutrinoless conversion of a muon into an electron by four orders of magnitude. Such sensitivity means that if low-energy supersymmetry is discovered at the LHC, Mu2e will provide complimentary information. Even in the absence of new physics at the TeV scale, Mu2e could still find evidence for new physics at mass scales up to 10^4 TeV. In this talk I will give a brief account of the theoretical motivation for the experiment, the current status of the design, planned methods to detect the conversion electron and to suppress backgrounds, and the expected sensitivity of the Mu2e experiment.
