JMU Kevin GiovanettiTitle:

Development of a High Stability, Precise, High Voltage Power System:  a Critical Component for the Muon g-2 Experiment at Fermi National Laboratory

 

Principal Investigator:

Dr. Kevin GIovanetti, Department of Physics at JMU in collaboration with Dr. Dinko Pocanic, Department of Physics at UVA

 

Summary:

This collaborative research project will combine the resources and expertise of two nuclear and particle physics groups.  This project will design, prototype and test a high voltage system that will be used to power detectors for the Muon g-2 experiment. This experiment will be performed at Fermi National Laboratory in Batavia, IL. The Muon g-2 experiment will measure the magnetic moment of the muon to a very high precision. This experiment can then be characterized as a critical test of the fundamental theory of matter and energy.

 

Awarded Funding:

$20,000
