The Standard Model of particle physics is incomplete: the microscopic nature of dark matter remains unknown, and the process behind baryogenesis remains elusive. The neutron, being a neutral particle and relatively easily experimentally controlled, offers a wonderful portal onto particle oscillation physics which could shed light on these fundamental issues. Using a clean experimental search utilizing free, cold neutron beams at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the future European Spallation Source, we propose a program of modular experimental configurations to search for both a dark matter candidate and baryon number violation, promising far reaching results able to highly constrain or entirely eliminate compelling theories of (co)baryogenesis and phenomenologically rich dark sectors.
