Description

MEG, Mu-E-Gamma, is an experiment aiming to detector a lepton-flavor violating muon decay, mu-->e gamma, with a better sensitivity than that of the previous experiment. The ultimate goal of the MEG experiment is to reach the sensitivity of the Br(mu->e gamma) at 10^13. Recently we have published our first result obtained using 2008 data, setting the branching ratio limit of 2.8x10^-11 at 90% C.L. We present an updated result using 2009 data in this presentation.
