Description E989 Muon g-2 collaboration 
Organisation Fermilab - Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
Country United States 
Sector Public 
PI Contribution The contribution made by Miss Kayleigh Anne Thomson was in the production of the E989 Muon g-2 straw tracker modules. Kayleigh Thomson was one of the 2 full time technicians who built all of the tracker modules, she was instrumental in the quality assurance testing and control of data. Kayleigh Thomson was also involved with design modifications, installation of modules at Fermilab and in producing the technical documentation for the tracker modules on behalf of the collaboration. Kayleigh Thomson also took part in a number of shift work during experiment Runs 1 and 2.
Collaborator Contribution Our collaborators were instrumental in the electronics firmware and software design, of design and build of other parts of the experiment such as the kickers and quads. As a collaboration we worked to create an experiment that is running successfully and producing data out that surpasses it's predecessor at Brookhaven.
Impact The experiment has been built and installed at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab. The experiment has been running for a numebr of years and has produced data that is contributing to measuring the anomolous magnetic moment of the muon to a much higher precision than it's predecessor E821 at Brookhaven.
