A bstractElectric dipole moments constitute a competitive method to search for new physics, being particularly sensitive to new CP -violating phases. Given the experimental and theoretical progress in this field and more generally in particle physics, the necessity for more reliable bounds than the ones usually employed emerges. We therefore propose an improved extraction of the electric dipole moment of the electron and the relevant coefficient of the electron-nucleon coupling, taking into… 

Model-independent determinations of the electron EDM and the role of diamagnetic atoms

A bstractWe perform model-independent analyses extracting limits for the electric dipole moment of the electron and the P,T-odd scalar-pseudoscalar (S-PS) nucleon-electron coupling from the most

A New Limit on the Electron Electric Dipole Moment: Beam Production, Data Interpretation, and Systematics

The charge distribution associated with an electron has surprising implications for a number of outstanding mysteries in physics. Why is the universe made out of matter versus anti-matter, instead of

Electric dipole moments in two-Higgs-doublet models

A bstractElectric dipole moments are extremely sensitive probes for additional sources of CP violation in new physics models. Specifically, they have been argued in the past to exclude new

P , T -Violating and Magnetic Hyperfine Interactions in Atomic Thallium

TLDR
A significant reduction of the theoretical uncertainties for ${\cal{P,T}}$-odd interaction constants but not to stronger constraints on the electron electric dipole moment, $d_e$, or the nucleon-electron scalar-pseudoscalar coupling constant, $C_S$.

The Electron EDM and EDMs in Two-Higgs-Doublet Models

Electric dipole moments constitute highly sensitive probes for CP-violating effects beyond the Standard Model. The upper limits obtained in various precision experiments can therefore be used to

Electric dipole moments in natural supersymmetry

A bstractWe discuss electric dipole moments (EDMs) in the framework of CP-violating natural supersymmetry (SUSY). Recent experimental results have significantly tightened constraints on the EDMs of

Electric dipole moments of atoms, molecules, nuclei, and particles

A permanent electric dipole moment (EDM) of a particle or system is a separation of charge along its angular momentum axis and is a direct signal of T violation and, assuming CPT symmetry, CP

Actinide and lanthanide molecules to search for strong CP-violation.

TLDR
This work studies the Schiff moment enhancement in the class of diatomic molecules with octupole-deformed lanthanide and actinide nuclei, which can have a dramatic impact on the modern understanding of the nature of CP-violating fundamental interactions.

Relativistic coupled-cluster study of diatomic metal-alkali-metal molecules for electron electric dipole moment searches

Recent improvements in experimental techniques for preparing ultracold molecules that contain alkali atoms (e.g. Li, Na, and K) have been reported. Based on these advances in ultracold molecules, new

A bstractWe study the phenomenology of electric dipole moments (EDMs) induced in various scalar leptoquark models. We consider generic leptoquark couplings to quarks and leptons and match to Standard

New limit on the electron electric dipole moment.

TLDR
The result of the most recent search for T violation in 205Tl is presented, which is interpreted in terms of an electric dipole moment of the electron d(e), which yields an upper limit /d(e)/ < or = 1.6x10(-27)e cm with 90% confidence.
