Muon lifetime measurement


Physics case

Determination of the beta-decay coupling constant through the measurement of the muon lifetime

Experimental technique

Two complementary approaches: Cherenkov light in water and scintillation in plastic detectors

Application domain

Particle identification in high energy experiments

Ongoing experiments

LHC experiments @ CERN

Educational goal

Set up of a multi-level trigger for rare event selection
