"Selected topics in searching for a neutron edm"
ABSTRACT:
A non-zero value of the neutron electric dipole moment (nedm) would represent a violation of T reversal and would be strong evidence for new physics beyond the standard model. After presenting an overview of the project and the experimental methods that are being designed into the search for a neutron edm that is foreseen to be carried out at the Oak Ridge Spallation neutron source (SNS) we discuss a newly discovered systematic error and efforts to deal with it.
