A bstractWe perform model-independent analyses extracting limits for the electric dipole moment of the electron and the P,T-odd scalar-pseudoscalar (S-PS) nucleon-electron coupling from the most recent measurements with atoms and molecules. The analysis using paramagnetic systems, only, is improved substantially by the inclusion of the recent measurement on HfF+ ions, but complicated by the fact that the corresponding constraints are largely aligned, owing to a general relation between the… 

P , T -Violating and Magnetic Hyperfine Interactions in Atomic Thallium

A significant reduction of the theoretical uncertainties for ${\cal{P,T}}$-odd interaction constants but not to stronger constraints on the electron electric dipole moment, $d_e$, or the nucleon-electron scalar-pseudoscalar coupling constant, $C_S$.

Systematic study and uncertainty evaluation of P, T-odd molecular enhancement factors in BaF.

The finite field relativistic coupled cluster approach is used to calculate the Wd and Ws parameters in the ground state of the BaF molecule, providing a reliable theoretical uncertainty estimate based on investigations of the basis set, electron correlation, relatvistic effects, and geometry.

Relativistic coupled-cluster study of diatomic metal-alkali-metal molecules for electron electric dipole moment searches

Recent improvements in experimental techniques for preparing ultracold molecules that contain alkali atoms (e.g. Li, Na, and K) have been reported. Based on these advances in ultracold molecules, new

Electric dipole moments of atoms, molecules, nuclei, and particles

A permanent electric dipole moment (EDM) of a particle or system is a separation of charge along its angular momentum axis and is a direct signal of T violation and, assuming CPT symmetry, CP

We calculate the effect of the P, CP-odd electron-nucleon interaction on the electric dipole moment of the $^{199}$Hg atom by evaluating the nuclear spin matrix elements in terms of the nuclear shell

The electron correlation for all of the 98 electrons of ThO simultaneously up to the level of the coupled cluster with single, double, and noniterative triple amplitudes, CCSD(T), theory is investigated.

Relativistic coupled-cluster calculation of the electron-nucleus scalar-pseudoscalar interaction constant W s in YbF

The scalar-pseudoscalar (S-PS) interaction, which has been predicted between the electrons and nuclei of atoms and molecules, violates parity- ($P$-) and time- ($T$-) reversal symmetries. The

A robust limit for the electric dipole moment of the electron

A bstractElectric dipole moments constitute a competitive method to search for new physics, being particularly sensitive to new CP -violating phases. Given the experimental and theoretical progress

Intrinsic electric dipole moments of paramagnetic atoms: rubidium and cesium.

This work has computed the EDM enhancement factors of the ground states of Rb and Cs due to both the electron EDM and the S-PS EDM using the relativistic coupled-cluster theory.

Probing CP violation with the electric dipole moment of atomic mercury.

The electric dipole moment of atomic 199Hg induced by the nuclear Schiff moment and the tensor-pseudotensor electron-nucleus interactions are calculated using a novel method based on the relativistic coupled-cluster theory, demonstrating substantial changes in the results of earlier calculations of these parameters which can be attributed to the more accurate inclusion of important correlation effects.
