Search for the neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM) at PSI
|New limit on the nEDM: The nEDM collaboration at PSI has published in Physical Review Letters the most sensitive measurement of the neutron EDM to date: dn= (0.0 ± 1.1stat ± 0.2sys) × 10-26 e·cm. Read on…|
Constructing n2EDM After running nEDM with the world’s best sensitivity in 2015/16, we are constructing n2EDM for an order of magnitude improvement.
|ERC Starting Grants Awards Two members of our collaboration, Guillaume Pignol and Florian Piegsa, have been awarded ERC Starting Grants for research projects connected to the neutron EDM search.|
|In Memoriam: Mike Pendlebury 1936-2015 The nEDM collaboration has suffered a great loss with the passing of our friend and colleague Mike Pendlebury. The entire field benefited greatly from his many contributions throughout his long and distinguished career, during which he played a leading role in reducing the nEDM limit by a factor of 1000. A memorial service at the University of Sussex took place on Friday 29 April 2016. An obituary appeared in The Guardian on 23 September 2015.|
Why does the Universe contain vast quantities of matter, but almost no antimatter?
What is the neutron electric dipole moment ?
