Searches for Exotic Interactions Using Slow Neutrons
Speaker:Prof. Mike Snow (Indiana University, Bloomington)
Abstract:The presence of dark matter and dark energy in the universe requires physics beyond the Standard Model of particles and fields. The properties of slow neutrons (low decoherence from the environment, possibility of coherent manipulation of its quantum degrees of freedom, ability to penetrate matter) make them well-suited to search for certain types of new phenomena. I will discuss some recent examples of slow neutron experiments which have sought for various types of exotic interactions.
