Lepton Flavour Violation in the charged lepton sector (CLFV) is forbidden in the Standard Model. Therefore, the observation of CLFV process would be clear evidence of physics beyond the Standard Model. The COMET (COherent Muon to Electron Transitions) experiment will measure one of these processes: µN → eN at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex in Tokai, Japan. The COMET experiment will be carried out using a two-staged approach. Phase-I of the experiment is aiming at a signal sensitivity of 3.1 × 10−15. Phase-II will use much more intense beam and a more complex transport system to achieve a single-event sensitivity of 3 × 10−17. The article gives an overview of construction and status of the COMET experiment.
