Realization of a high-performance laser-based mercury magnetometer for neutron EDM experiments

At the Paul Scherrer Institute an international collaboration is searching for the permanent electric dipole moment of the neutron (nEDM). The experiment is strongly motivated by finding a new source

Data and systematic error analysis for the neutron electric dipole moment experiment at the Paul Scherrer Institute and search for axionlike dark matter

This thesis details work conducted as part of the experimental collaboration responsible for the neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM) experiment based at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). The nEDM

Searching for electric dipole moments

Searches for a permanent Electric Dipole Moment (EDM) of a fundamental particle provide a wide window for the discovery of potential New Physics. Within todays Standard Model in particle physics the

Improved experimental limit on the electric dipole moment of the neutron.

The results may be interpreted as an upper limit on the neutron EDM of |d(n)|< 2.9 x 10(-26)e cm (90% C.L.).

A new facility for fundamental particle physics: The high-intensity ultracold neutron source at the Paul Scherrer Institute

The fundamental properties of the neutron can be studied in detail using ultracold neutrons (UCN) which can be stored and observed for hundreds of seconds. A new user facility providing ultracold

New constraints on Lorentz invariance violation from the neutron electric dipole moment

We propose an original test of Lorentz invariance in the interaction between a particle spin and an electromagnetic field and report on a first measurement using ultracold neutrons. We used a

Experimental limit to the electric dipole moment of the neutron

An experimental measurement of the electric dipole moment of the neutron by a neutron-beam magnetic resonance method is described. The result of the experiment is that the electric dipole moment of

A Molecular Beam Resonance Method with Separated Oscillating Fields

A new molecular beam resonance method using separated oscillating fields at the incident and emergent ends of the homogeneous field region is theoretically investigated in this paper. An expression

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

Test of Lorentz invariance with spin precession of ultracold neutrons.

A clock comparison experiment, analyzing the ratio of spin precession frequencies of stored ultracold neutrons and 199Hg atoms, finds an upper limit on the Lorentz invariance violating cosmic anisotropy field b perpendicular, which is the first limit for the free neutron.
