Scope

The international workshop, nEDM2014, on techniques, methods and instrumentation for searches of a neutron electric dipole moment will be held in Ascona, Switzerland, from Sunday, November 2nd to Thursday, November 6th, 2014. It is organized by the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI), the ETH of Zurich, the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL), Grenoble and the Rutherford Appelton Laboratory (RAL), Oxford on Monte Verità, with support by the Congressi Stefano Franscini.

 

  Searches for a permanent electric dipole moment (EDM) of the neutron are among the highest priority experiments of low energy particle physics. A finite EDM violates time reversal symmetry (while a magnetic dipole does not) and goes beyond the Standard Model of Particle Physics. The workshop focuses on vital issues of the experimental approaches and brings together the leading experts in the field and students from all efforts world-wide.
 


The workshop will consist of invited and contributed talks and poster sessions.

nEDM2014 is the second workshop, held in the spirit of the 2012 meeting at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennesse, United States of America.
