The Nab experiment: A precision measurement of unpolarized neutron beta decay

Neutron beta decay is one of the most fundamental processes in nuclear physics and provides sensitive means to uncover the details of the weak interaction. Neutron beta decay can evaluate the ratio

Thin Films for the Transport of Polarized Ultracold Neutrons for Fundamental Symmetry Study

The use of ultracold neutrons (UCN) to study fundamental parameters such as the neutron lifetime and decay correlations in polarized neutron beta decay are poised to make significant contributions to

BRAND – Search for BSM physics at TeV scale by exploring transverse polarization of electrons emitted in neutron decay

Neutron and nuclear beta decay correlation coefficients are linearly sensitive to the exotic scalar and tensor interactions that are not included in the Standard Model (SM). The proposed experiment

NoMoS: An R × B drift momentum spectrometer for beta decay studies

The beta decay of the free neutron provides several probes to test the Standard Model of particle physics as well as to search for extensions thereof. Hence, multiple experiments investigating the

Measurement of the Proton Asymmetry (C) in free neutron β-decay with Perkeo III

The decay of polarized neutrons can be used to search for Physics Beyond the Standard Model. The non-isotropic angular distributions of the decay particles are parity violating and reveal the true

Title Neutron detection in the frame of spatial magnetic spinresonance

This work is related to neutron detection in the context of the polarised neutron optics technique of spatial magnetic spin resonance. By this technique neutron beams may be tailored in their

The Neutron and Its Role in Cosmology and Particle Physics

Experiments with cold and ultracold neutrons have reached a level of precision such that problems far beyond the scale of the present standard model of particle physics become accessible to

Spectroscopy with cold and ultra-cold neutrons

We present two new types of spectroscopy methods for cold and ultra-cold neutrons. The first method, which uses the \RB drift effect to disperse charged particles in a uniformly curved magnetic



The neutron decay retardation spectrometer aSPECT: Electromagnetic design and systematic effects

Abstract.The apparatus described here, aSPECT, will be used for a measurement of the neutrino-electron angular correlation coefficient a in the decay of free neutrons. The idea of the aSPECT

New Measurements and Quantitative Analysis of Electron Backscattering in the Energy Range of Neutron Beta-Decay

We report on the first detailed measurements of electron backscattering from plastic scintillator targets, extending our previous work on beryllium and silicon targets. The scintillator experiment

Pulsed-beam neutron-lifetime measurement.

The neutron lifetime is measured using a superconducting electron spectrometer and a pulsed beam of cold neutrons to determine the flux from the radioactivity of nearly totally absorbing thick samples of cobalt and gold exposed to the neutron beam.
