Mr Felix Anton Berg (PSI)


The detection of events excluded by the Standard Model would be an unambiguous sign of new physics. The MEG Experiment has reached the most stringent upper limit of 4.2 10-13 , in its search for the lepton flavor violating decay mu->e+gamma. The increased beam rate in the MEG-II upgrade experiment requires an improved stopping target. We are investigating the use of a scintillation target, viewed by a CCD camera, also usable as a beam monitoring system providing direct information about the beam centre, beam profile and the total intensity. The results of the first tests will be presented.
