The Fermilab Muon g-2 Experiment

by Dr Mark Lancaster

The Fermilab Muon g-2 experiment, E989, is presently being constructed and is seeking to measure the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon to a precision of 0.14ppm: a factor of four better than the previous Brookhaven measurement which has a long-standing discrepancy with respect to the SM prediction of approximately 3.5 standard deviations. I will review the status of the Fermilab experiment and describe how the reduction in the experimental and theoretical uncertainties will be achieved and the UK's role in the experiment.
