Atomic Parity Nonconservation and Nuclear Anapole Moments

  title={Atomic Parity Nonconservation and Nuclear Anapole Moments},
  author={Wick Haxton and Carl E. Wieman}
Anapole moments are parity-odd, time-reversal-even moments of the E1 projection of the electromagnetic current. Although it was recognized, soon after the discovery of parity violation in the weak interaction, that elementary particles and composite systems like nuclei must have anapole moments, it proved difficult to isolate this weak radiative correction. The first successful measurement, an extraction of the nuclear anapole moment of Cs from the hyperfine dependence of the atomic parity… CONTINUE READING
