From Quarks to Black Holes: let’s get INSPYRED!
Stranger things – the muons – E. Diociaiuti (INFN-LNF)
“Muon, who ordered that?” That’s what Nobel laureate Isidor Isaac Rabi said…
In the 30s of the last century scientists thought they had everything figured out: matter is made of atoms, atoms are made of protons, neutrons, and electrons.
Suddenly they discovered the muon, a very interesting particle; we can say a heavy cousin of the electron.
Let’s discover together the many adventures of the research about the muons and why still in these days they are so special: from the volcano radiography to the g-2 anomaly
Eleonora Diociaiuti is a post-doc at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati, Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN-LNF). She took her PhD at University of Rome “Tor Vergata” in 2020 and currently works for the Mu2e experiment, under construction at Fermilab (USA). In these days she is taking part at the construction of the Mu2e electromagnetic calorimeter.
