Experiments with ultracold neutrons at PSI

CP 179
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s):
Dr. Dieter Ries (PSI)

The ultracold neutron (UCN) source at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) is
being successfully operated since 2011 and has provided UCN for example
to the nEDM experiment, which has placed the tightest constraints to
date on the neutron's electric dipole moment in 2020. Currently the
successor experiment n2EDM is being commissioned at the same position.
At the second beam port, the neutron lifetime experiment τSPECT,
developed at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, is currently being set up for data taking. τSPECT is the first neutron lifetime experiment using spin-flip loading and 3-dimensional magnetic storage of neutrons.
