Atomic Physics Seminar
Optical magnetometry for the Munich neutron EDM experiment
Time: 11:00 am
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: David Wurm , TUM Munich
Abstract: The next generation experiments for the electric dipole moment (EDM) of the neutron search for a manifestation of yet unknown time reversal violation sources. In the Munich nEDM experiment ultra-cold neutrons are stored in two cylindrical vessels and subject to parallel and anti-parallel magnetic and electric fields. Applying Ramsey's method of separated oscillatory fields a phase proportional to the EDM is obtained from a clock comparison scheme.

The first part of this talk discusses the general scheme of nEDM experiment with respect to the upcoming 2018 measurements at the Institut Laue-Langevin. The latter part will focus on optical Cs and Hg magnetometers used to monitor and stabilize the magnetic field.
