Search for exotic spin-dependent couplings of the neutron with matter using spin-echo based neutron interferometry

Various theories beyond the Standard Model predict new particles with masses in the sub-eV range with very weak couplings to ordinary matter which can possess spin-dependent couplings to electrons

Neutron spin rotation measurements

The neutron spin rotation (NSR) collaboration used parity-violating spin rotation of transversely polarized neutrons transmitted through a 0.5 m liquid helium target to constrain weak coupling

Tests of fundamental quantum mechanics and dark interactions with low-energy neutrons

Among the known particles, the neutron takes a special position, as it provides experimental access to all four fundamental forces and a wide range of hypothetical interactions. Despite being

Searches for Exotic Interactions Using Neutrons

Slow neutrons possess several advantageous properties which make them useful probes for a variety of exotic interactions, including some that can form at least some components of the dark matter of

Review of noble-gas spin amplification via the spin-exchange collisions

Due to isolation from the environment with the protection of the full electronic shells, nuclear spins of noble gas typically feature extraordinary long coherence times, high polarization and good

Internal consistency of neutron coherent scattering length measurements from neutron interferometry and from neutron gravity reflectometry

Many theories beyond the Standard Model postulate short-range modifications to gravity which produce deviations of Newton's gravitational potential from a strict $1/r$ dependence. It is common to

Constraints on exotic spin-velocity-dependent interactions

Experimental searches for exotic spin-dependent forces are attracting a lot of attention because they allow to test theoretical extensions to the standard model. Here, we report an experimental

Snowmass White Paper: Precision Studies of Spacetime Symmetries and Gravitational Physics

High-energy physics is primarily concerned with uncovering the laws and principles that govern nature at the fundamental level. Research in this field usually relies on probing the boundaries of

Compact ultracold neutron source concept for low-energy accelerator-driven neutron sources

The concept of a small-scale, pulsed-proton accelerator based compact ultracold neutron (UCN) source is presented. The essential idea of the compact UCN source is to enclose a volume of superfluid

Fundamental Physics in Small Experiments

High energy physics aims to understand the fundamental laws of particles and their interactions at both the largest and smallest scales of the universe. This typically means probing very high



New limit on possible long-range parity-odd interactions of the neutron from neutron-spin rotation in liquid 4He.

The constraint on the product of vector and axial vector couplings of a possible new light vector boson is g(V) g(A)(n) ≤ 10(-32) for an interaction range of 1 m, corresponding to a broad range ofvector boson masses above 10(-6) eV.

Limits on the axial coupling constant of new light bosons.

We report on a neutron particle physics experiment, which provides for the first time an upper limit on the strength of an axial coupling constant for a new light spin 1 boson in the millimeter

Limits on new long range nuclear spin-dependent forces set with a K-3He comagnetometer.

New limits on neutron coupling to light pseudoscalar and vector particles, including torsion, and constraints on recently proposed models involving unparticles and spontaneous breaking of Lorentz symmetry are presented.

Using geoelectrons to search for velocity-dependent spin-spin interactions.

The recently developed model of the electron spins within Earth is used to investigate all of the six possible long-range velocity-dependent spin-spin interactions associated with the exchange of an ultralight (mz'<10(-10) eV) or massless intermediate vector boson and improves the bound on the sixth potential by 30 orders of magnitude.

A slow neutron polarimeter for the measurement of parity-odd neutron rotary power.

This device is the neutron optical equivalent of a crossed polarizer/analyzer pair familiar from light optics and has been used to search for parity violation in the interaction of polarized slow neutrons in matter.

Spin-dependent macroscopic forces from new particle exchange

Long-range forces between macroscopic objects are mediated by light particles that interact with the electrons or nucleons, and include spin-dependent static components as well as spin- and
