The MEG experiment searching for lepton flavor violating muon decay, finished data taking successfully in 2013. The final sensitivity of the experiment was 5.3 × 10−13, and since the experiment did not find any signal, the upper limit of the branching ratio of the µ → e+γ was set to be 4.2 × 10−13 at 90% C.L.. The MEG II experiment will have a target sensitivity improved by an order of magnitude down to 6 ×10−14 with three years data taking. In 2018 after the detector integration, the muon beam data taking took place with a limited number of readout channels. In 2019, the engineering run and the physics run will be started. The Mu3e experiment will search for the lepton flavor violating decay µ+→ e+e−e+ with unprecedented sensitivity. Construction of the detector is going to start in 2020 and for the first phase a single event sensitivity of 2 × 10−15 is expected.
