Description COMET Experiment Collaboration 
Organisation Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (BINP)
Country Russian Federation 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution The Imperial group participates in the international COMET Experiment collaboration, which spans 14 countries and over 35 institutions (a selection of which are listed here). The Imperial group is contributing the Data Acquisition and Offline Software and Physics Analysis working groups, and holds the elected position of Collaboration Board Chair.
Collaborator Contribution The collaboration is building a new experiment at the J-PARC laboratory in Japan, and are making contributions across the entire experiment (particle beam line, infrastructure, particle detectors and electronics and computing etc.
Impact The experiment has been approved for construction in Japan, and in several other countries, as a result of this collaboration, with Imperial and the UK playing a key role in this. As the experiment is currently under construction (to start taking data in 2019), the main outputs are proposal and technical design documents, research theses and conference proceedings etc, with physics results expected in the next few years.
