Abstract

The MEG II experiment at Paul Scherrer Institut in Switzerland will search for the lepton flavour violating muon decay, μ+→ e+\gamma, with a sensitivity of 4× 10-14improving the existing limit of an order of magnitude. In 2016, we finished the construction of the MEG II Timing Counter, the subdetector dedicated to the measurement of the positron emission time. The first one-fourth of it was installed in the experimental area and we performed a pilot run with the MEG II beam of 7× 107μ+/ s. The timing resolution reached the design value improving by a factor of two compared to MEG.
