Abstract

The Mu2e experiment at Fermilab will search for charged lepton flavor violation via the coherent neutrino-less conversion of muons to electrons in the field of an aluminum nucleus. The Mu2e experiment aims to improve the sensitivity by four orders of magnitude over exisiting limits of the branching ratio for this conversion. Mu2e offers discovery potential over a wide array of new physics models and probes mass scales well beyond the reach of present, or future collider, experiments. The Mu2e experimental setup, design and current status is discussed.
