A bstractThe ACME collaboration has recently announced a new constraint on the electron EDM, |de| < 1.1 × 10−29e cm, from measurements of the ThO molecule. This is a powerful constraint on CP-violating new physics: even new physics generating the EDM at two loops is constrained at the multi-TeV scale. We interpret the bound in the context of different scenarios for new physics: a general order-of-magnitude analysis for both the electron EDM and the CP-odd electron-nucleon coupling; 1-loop SUSY…

CP violating effects in 210Fr and prospects for new physics beyond the Standard Model

We report theoretical results of the electric dipole moment (EDM) of $^{210}$Fr which arises from the interaction of the EDM of an electron with the internal electric field in an atom and the

Discovering the physics of (g−2)μ at future muon colliders

The longstanding muon $g\ensuremath{-}2$ anomaly may indicate the existence of new particles that couple to muons, which could either be light $(\ensuremath{\lesssim}\mathrm{GeV})$ and weakly

Two-Higgs-doublet model with soft CP violation confronting electric dipole moments and colliders

We analyze CP-violating effects in both Electric Dipole Moment (EDM) measurements and future analyses at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) assuming a 2-Higgs-Doublet Model (2HDM) with "soft"

No-lose theorem for discovering the new physics of (g−2)μ at muon colliders

We perform a model-exhaustive analysis of all possible beyond Standard Model (BSM) solutions to the $(g-2)_\mu$ anomaly to study production of the associated new states at future muon colliders, and

The metastable Q 3Δ2 state of ThO: a new resource for the ACME electron EDM search

The best upper limit for the electron electric dipole moment was recently set by the ACME collaboration. This experiment measures an electron spin-precession in a cold beam of ThO molecules in their

Probing dark sector CP violation with electric dipole moments and colliders

We study the experimental constraints on dark sector CP violation that enters the visible sector through a Higgs portal coupling $H^{\dagger} H Z^{\prime}_{\mu\nu} \widetilde Z^{\prime \mu\nu}$,

Atoms and molecules in the search for time-reversal symmetry violation

New fundamental particles at the mass scale of a few TeV c–2 could account for observed phenomena that cannot be explained by the standard model (SM) of particle physics, including the microscopic

Collapsing domain walls in the two-Higgs-doublet model and deep insights from the EDM

We study the domain wall solutions in the general two-Higgs-doublet model (2HDM) with a CP-violating phase. The 2HDM with the spontaneouse CP violation is found to have domain wall solutions whose

Electric dipole moment signatures of PeV-scale superpartners

A possible supersymmetric interpretation of the new Higgs-like 126 GeV resonance involves a high sfermion mass scale, from tens of TeV to a PeV or above. This scale provides sufficiently large loop

Dark Matter Search Results from a One Ton-Year Exposure of XENON1T.

A search for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) using 278.8 days of data collected with the XENON1T experiment at LNGS finds no significant excess over background, and a profile likelihood analysis parametrized in spatial and energy dimensions excludes new parameter space for the WIMP-nucleon spin-independent elastic scatter cross section.
