"Testing Time Reversal Invariance in Neutron Beta Decay"
 Slideshow (PDF)
Neutron beta decay is the simplest of all nuclear beta decay. Its simplicity allows properties of neutron decay to be related directly to the weak coupling constants and thus precision measurements of neutron decay correlations and lifetime offer both sensitive checks of the Electroweak Standard Model as well as excellent probes of new physics. One question of intense interest is the nature of the observed baryon-antibaryon asymmetry of the universe. In this talk I will focus on a sensitive search for new time reversal invariance violating physics which offers the potential of illuminating this mystery.
