Welcome to the Muon Lifetime Experiment
The new measurement of the muon lifetime at PSI is a collaborative effort of the following people:
A First Try
In the summer months of June and July of 2000 we had the pleasure of being the guests of PSI.
There we had our first test beam run in which we got to test out our
prototype µLan Detector, developed at UIUC, and got to know our beam line. Not to mention
seeing many of the beautiful sights that Switzerland has to offer.
Come see our first test beam at PSI
Second Time Around
During the summer of 2001 and we worked on our second test beam at PSI.

Three Times A Charm?
During July of 2002 we'll be at PSI once again, hoping to make a measurement on par with the current world average. We'll be posting pictures, diagrams, and results as the summer goes on.
For now, take a look at Kevin's email on the simulation software to whet your appetite.
What we are up to
Here at Boston University we are doing our part by developing the electronics
for our data aquisition system. We are currently working on a Wave Form
Digitizer (WFD or woofda as DH likes to call it) that will sample the signal from the detector at a rate
of 500Mhz and a resolution of 8 bits. To learn more please take a look at our
