"Investigating Parity Violation in Neutron Decay "
ABSTRACT:
Precision measurements in neutron decay allow to determine the coupling constants of weak interaction and to test aspects of the Standard Model of Elementary Particle Physics. This is achieved in measurements of the lifetime of the neutron and of several angular correlations in the decay. In my talk I will mainly report about the experiences and results we gained with the spectrometers PERKEO and aSPECT.
