Searches for New Physics with the TREK Detector

Speaker: Steffen Strauch

The KEK Experiment E246 has provided the best upper limit of the transverse muon polarization in Kmu3 decays to date.  The E246 detector is now being upgraded by the TREK collaboration and upcoming experiments with this detector at the J-PARC facility will allow new high-precision measurements in search for physics beyond the standard model.  In this talk I will discuss the current status of the detector upgrade and several planned measurements, such as the search for T violation in kaon decays, the search for lepton-universality violation in a measurement of the ratio of the Ke2 and Kmu2 decay widths, and the search for a heavy sterile neutrino.
