The Neutron as a Laboratory for Fundamental Physics

A broad spectrum of fundamental physics tests are possible in experiments utilizing low energy neutrons, with physics implications ranging from tests of the Standard Model to Big Bang Nucleosynthesis to dark matter and dark energy. Advances in techniques for neutron production and transport, coupled with precision measurement techniques, have culminated in a now burgeoning era of fundamental physics experiments with neutrons. This talk will highlight our group's contributions to this worldwide endeavor.

Refreshments will be served in CP 179 at 3:15 PM
