Abstract:

 

The MEG experiment at Paul Sherrer Institute (PSI) is currently underway

for an experimental search for the Lepton Flavor Violating decay $\mu\rightarrow\mathrm{e}\gamma$.

The planned experiment will utilize an intense surface muon beam,

together with a gradient-field solenoidal spectrometer and a liquid Xenon

scintillation photon detector, to detect the positron and photon

from such a decay. The goal of this experiment is to measure

the decay at a sensitivity down to $10^{-14}$ and to verify

supersymmetric grand unified theories.
