# Limits on neutron Lorentz violation from pulsar timing

@article{Altschul2006LimitsON, title={Limits on neutron Lorentz violation from pulsar timing}, author={Brett Altschul}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2006}, volume={75}, pages={023001} }

Pulsars are the most accurate naturally occurring clocks, and data about them can be used to set bounds on neutron-sector Lorentz violations. If SO(3) rotation symmetry is completely broken for neutrons, then pulsars' rotation speeds will vary periodically. Pulsar timing data limits the relevant Lorentz-violating coefficients to be smaller than 1.7x10{sup -8} at at least 90% confidence.
