Bartington Mag690 Magnetometers Used in Fermilab’s Muon G-2 Experiment

The first results from the Muon g-2 experiment hosted at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory show fundamental particles called muons behaving in a way not predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics. The results confirm an earlier experiment of the same name performed at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Combined, the two results show strong evidence that our best model of the subatomic world is incomplete. One potential explanation would be the existence of undiscovered particles of forces.

Bartington Mag690 Magnetometers were used in background field measurement for the experiment.
