Exploring Symmetry Violations with Free Neutrons

Sep 28, 2018 at 2:30pm in AQ3150

Synopsis

Symmetry principles are basic tenets for our theory of fundamental interactions.

While they have been essential in building the theory, it is in their violations were major breakthroughs have often occurred. We will discuss how searches for symmetry violations can play a key role in elucidating the details of the fundamental forces.  We will focus on the role of past and future precision measurements using free neutrons.
