We upgraded Indico to version 3.0. The new search is now available as well.

In the next decade, accelerator upgrades are expected in various facilities, making it feasible to have continuous muons beams with an intensity of $10^9$ or even $10^{10}$ muons per second. These progresses would open new prospects in the search for the Lepton Flavor Violating decay $\mu \to e \gamma$. We discuss the potential sensitivity to this decay for experiments exploiting continuous beams at these extremely high rates, by investigating the experimental limiting factors that will define their ultimate performances.
