Speaker:Prof. Chen-Yu Liu (Indiana University)
Time: 14:00, Friday, May 31, 2019
Place: 1F Auditorium, Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica
In this talk, Dr. Liu will review the theoretical motivation for EDM searches and describe the experimental techniques. The latter include high-density ultracold neutron (UCN) sources, state-of-the-art magnetic shielding, novel magnetic field configurations, and sensitive magnetometry (both external and co-habitating) to control systematic effects.
Dr. Liu will focus on one particular initiative at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, where we plan to improve the EDM sensitivity by an order of magnitude within a decade.
