Description

We present recent results of the MEG experiment, which has been searching for the Lepton Flavour Violating decay mu->e gamma since several years. In a combined dataset corresponding to 3.6 x 10**14 stopped muons on target we didn't find any evidence for this decay and we established an upper bound on the mu->e gamma branching ratio of 5.7 x 10**(-13) at 90% C.L., which improves our world best limit by a factor four. We discuss also the expected final sensitivity of the MEG experiment.
