Oral Searches for permanent electric dipole moments Mo - 2


Prof. Michael Ramsey-Musolf (U. Massachusetts Amherst)


Searches for the permanent electric dipole moments of atoms, nucleons, and nuclei provide one of the most powerful probes of CP-violation beyond the Standard Model. I survey the opportunities for discovering BSM CP-violation with the present and next generation EDM searches; discuss the complementary of searches using different systems; and highlight the implications of these searches for explaining the origin of the cosmic matter-antimatter asymmetry.
