Particle Physics with Cold and Ultra-Cold Neutrons

681. WE-Heraeus-Seminar


24 Oct - 26 Oct 2018


Physikzentrum Bad Honnef

New physics beyond the standard model is required to understand many unexplained features both of particle physics and of cosmology. So when we search for phenomena beyond today's standard model it should be done where the discovery potential is highest. This WE-Heraeus Seminar will serve as a forum to discuss the prospects of particle physics with cold and ultra-cold neutrons, where it complements direct LHC-searches at the other end of the energy scale.

This WE-Heraeus seminar is intended as a focused 2.5 day seminar with time for intensive discussions. The programme covers all contemporary major areas of the field of particle physics with neutrons with a focus on

  •  Neutron Lifetime,
  •  Neutron Decay Correlations,
  •  Neutron Electric Dipole Moment,
  •  Quantum Interference and Gravitational Bound States.

An emphasis is put on recent results and upcoming experiments and facilities. Overview and theory talks will introduce the different subjects, discuss the potential reach and impact and experimental challenges.

The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.
