Title: “The MEG II Experiment: status and perspective”

Speaker: Luca Galli,  INFN-Pisa

Abstract: The MEG experiment, designed to search for the μ → eγ decay, completed data-taking in 2013 and set an upper limit on the process ≤ 4.2 × 10−13 @ 90% C.L.. In order to increase the sensitivity reach of the experiment by an order of magnitude to the level of 6×10e−14, a total upgrade, involving substantial changes to the experiment, has been undertaken, known as MEG II.
After giving an overview of the published MEG result, I present both the motivation for the upgrade and a detailed overview of the design of the experiment and commissioning status.
