Dipole Moments Day 1: EDM theory and neutron EDMs
- Yannis Semertzidis (Brookhaven National Laboratory)
- Tanmoy Bhattacharya (Los Alamos National Laboratory)
The existence of a nonzero permanent electric dipole moment of the neutron would reveal a new source of CP violation and might shed light on the origin of the matter/antimatter asymmetry of the Universe. The sensitivity of future experiments using intense sources of neutrons will probe new physics well beyond the TeV scale.
A discovery of an nEDM or a further improved limit will markedly and...
