"New physics" in neutron decay - BRAND experiment

by Dr Kozela Adam (IFJ PAN)



Study of weak decay of nuclear systems shaped the foundations of the standard model of particles and their interactions. Free neutron decay has a very prominent place in this field.
In this seminar I will introduce experimental principle and current status of a pioneering experiment searching for exotic, time reversal violating interactions, via precise measurement of angular correlations in free neutron decay, some of which have never been measured before.
