Search for the neutron electric dipole moment: Contributions from the triangle universities nuclear laboratory

Conference Paper

A significant fraction of the research effort at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL) focuses on weak interaction studies and searches for physics beyond the Standard Model. One major effort is the development of a new experimental technique to search for the neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM) that offers the potential for a factor of 100 increase in sensitivity over existing measurements. The search for this moment has the potential to reveal new sources of time reversal (T) and charge-conjugation-and-parity (CP) violation and to challenge calculations that propose extensions to the Standard Model. We provide a brief overview of the experiment as a whole and discuss the work underway at TUNL as part of this effort.
