1. Search for a T-odd, P-even Triple Correlation in Neutron Decay
Published: 9/14/2012
Authors: Jeffrey S Nico, T E. Chupp, K P Coulter, R L Cooper, S. J. Freeman, B. K. Fujikawa, A. Garcia, G L. Jones, Hans P Mumm, Alan K Thompson, C A Trull, F. E Wiefeldt, J. F. Wilkerson
Abstract: Time-reversal-invariance (T) violation, or equivalently, assuming charge-conjugation-parity-time-reversal (CPT) invariance, CP violation may explain the observed cosmological baryon asymmetry as well as signal physics beyond the Standard Model. In th ...

2. A New Limit on Time-Reversal Violation in Beta Decay
Published: 9/2/2012
Authors: Hans P Mumm, T E. Chupp, K P Coulter, R L Cooper, S J Freedman, B. K. Fujikawa, A. Garcia, G L. Jones, Jeffrey S Nico, Alan K Thompson, C A Trull, J. F. Wilkerson, F. E Wiefeldt
Abstract: We report the results of an improved determination of the triple correlation DP , (p_e × p_v) that can be used to limit possible time-reversal invariance in the beta decay of polarized neutrons and constrain extensions to the Standard Model. Our resu ...

3. A gamma and X-ray dector for cryogenic, high magnetic field applications
Published: 7/13/2012
Authors: Thomas R. Gentile, R L Cooper, R. Alarcon, M J Bales, E J Beise, H Breuer, J. Byrne, T E. Chupp, Kevin J Coakley, Maynard S Dewey, Changbo Fu, Hans P Mumm, Jeffrey S Nico, Brian O'Neill, K. Pulliam, Alan K Thompson, F E. Wietfeldt
Abstract: As part of an experiment to measure the spectrum of photons emitted in beta-decay of the free neu- tron, we developed and operated a detector consisting of 12 bismuth germanate (BGO) crystals coupled to avalanche photodiodes (APDs). The detector wa ...

4. An Upper Bound on Parity Violating Neutron Spin Rotation in He-4
Published: 1/31/2011
Authors: Jeffrey S Nico, W M. Snow, Christopher D. Bass, Tiffany D. Bass, B. E. Crawford, K. F. Gan, B R Heckel, D Lou, D M Markoff, A M. Micherdzinska, Hans P Mumm, A. K. Opper, M Sarsour, E I Sharapov, H E Swanson, S. C Walbridge, V Zhumabekova
Abstract: We report an upper bound on parity violating neutron spin rotation in He-4. This experiment is the most sensitive search for neutron weak optical activity yet performed. Our result for the neutron spin rotation angle per unit length in He-4 is dphi/ ...

5. Polarized neutron beam properties for measuring parity-violating spin rotation in liquid He4
Published: 12/14/2010
Authors: A M. Micherdzinska, C. D. Bass, T. D. Bass, K. F. Gan, D Lou, D M Markoff, Hans P Mumm, Jeffrey S Nico, A. K. Opper, E I Sharapov, M Snow, H E Swanson, V Zhumabekova
Abstract: Measurements of parity-violating neutron spin rotation can provide insight into the poorly nderstood nucleon-nucleon weak interaction. Because the expected rotation angle per unit length is small (10−7 rad/m), several properties of the polarize ...

6. An experiment for the precision measurement of the radiative decay mode of the neutron
Published: 10/5/2009
Authors: R Cooper, Christopher D. Bass, E Beise, H Breuer, J Byrne, T E. Chupp, Kevin J Coakley, Maynard S Dewey, B Fisher, Changbo Fu, Thomas R. Gentile, M. McGonagle, Hans P Mumm, Jeffrey S Nico, Alan K Thompson, F E. Wietfeldt
Abstract: The neutron typically beta decays into a proton, electron, and antineutrino. In some decays, it can be accompanied by a high energy photon. We recently performed the rst observation of the radiative beta decay branch for the free neutron with phot ...

7. Radiative Beta Decay of the Free Neutron
Published: 2/2/2009
Authors: R L Cooper, T E. Chupp, Maynard S Dewey, Thomas R. Gentile, Hans P Mumm, Jeffrey S Nico, Alan K Thompson, B M Fisher, I Kremsky, F E. Wietfeldt, E J Beise, H Breuer, K G Kiriluk, J Bryne, Kevin J Coakley, Changbo Fu
Abstract: The theory of quantum electrodynamics predicts that the beta decay of the neutron into a proton, electron, and antineutrino is accompanied by a continuous spectrum of emitted photons described as inner bremsstrahlung. While this phenomenon has been ...

8. Particle and Photon Detection for a Neutron Radiative Decay Experiment
Published: 4/11/2007
Authors: Thomas R. Gentile, Maynard S Dewey, Hans P Mumm, Jeffrey S Nico, Alan K Thompson, T E. Chupp, R Cooper, B M Fisher, I Kremsky, F E. Wietfeldt, K G Kiriluk, E Beise
Abstract: We present the particle and photon detection methods employed in a program to observe neutron radiative beta-decay. The experiment is located at the NG-6 beam line at the National Institute of Standards and Technology Center for Neutron Research. E ...

9. Observation of the Radiative Decay Mode of the Free Neutron
Published: 12/29/2006
Authors: Jeffrey S Nico, Maynard S Dewey, Thomas R. Gentile, Hans P Mumm, Alan K Thompson, B Fisher, I Kremsky, Fred E. Wietfeldt, T E Chupp, R Cooper, E Beise, K G Kiriluk, J Byrne, Kevin J Coakley
Abstract: The theory of quantum electrodynamics predicts that beta decay of the neutron into a proton, electron, and antineutrino should be accompanied by a continuous spectrum of soft photons. While this inner bremsstrahlung branch has been previously measure ...
