Relativistic coupled-cluster study of BaF in search of CP violation

BaF is one of the potential candidates for the experimental search of the electric dipole moment of the electron (eEDM). The NL-eEDM collaboration is building a new experimental set up to measure the

Search for parity and time reversal violating effects in HgH: Relativistic coupled-cluster study.

The Z-vector method in the relativistic coupled-cluster framework is employed and found that HgH has a very large Eeff value which makes it a potential candidate for the next generation eEDM experiment and a large scalar-pseudoscalar (S-PS) P,T-violating interaction constant, Ws = 284.2 kHz.
