New Physics and the MEG Experiment

  • Simeone Dussoni
Conference paper


The importance of searching signals from “non-standard” physics has been growing in the last years, in spite of the astounding success of the Standard Model in predicting particle existence and behaviour. In particular the Lepton Flavor Violating (LFV) processes, and exspecially the µe + γ decay, are a very promising field to probe effect of physics beyond the Standard Model [1]. Thus the MEG experiment has been proposed and is in an advanced phase of construction at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI).
