New project for precise neutron lifetime measurement at J-PARC

The decay lifetime of free neutrons (∼880 s) is an important parameter of the weak interaction and for Big Bang Nucleosynthesis. However, results of measurements currently show discrepancies

Neutron lifetime measurement with pulsed cold neutrons

The neutron lifetime has been measured by comparing the decay rate with the reaction rate of $^3$He nuclei of a pulsed neutron beam from the spallation neutron source at the Japan Proton Accelerator

Precise Neutron Lifetime Measurement Using Pulsed Neutron Beams at J-PARC

The neutron beta-decay lifetime (∼ 880 s) is an important parameter in the weak interaction of the Standard Model, cosmology, and astrophysics. For example, the neutron lifetime is a parameter which

Measurement of γ rays from 6LiF tile as an inner wall of a neutron-decay detector

A neutron lifetime measurement conducted at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) is counting the number of electrons from neutron decays with a time projection chamber (TPC). The γ

Progress on the BL2 beam measurement of the neutron lifetime

A precise value of the neutron lifetime is important in several areas of physics, including determinations of the quark-mixing matrix element |Vud|, related tests of the Standard Model, and

Fundamental Physics Activities with Pulsed Neutron at J-PARC(BL05)

"Neutron Optics and Physics (NOP/ BL05)" at MLF in J-PARC is a beamline for studies of fundamental physics. The beamline is divided into three branches so that different experiments can be performed

Measurements of the Neutron Lifetime

Free neutron decay is a fundamental process in particle and nuclear physics. It is the prototype for nuclear beta decay and other semileptonic weak particle decays. Neutron decay played a key role in
