The neutron electric dipole moment
Argonne Physics Division Seminar - 21 Mar 2005

A finite neutron electric dipole moment (EDM) violates Charge conjugation-Parity (CP) symmetry. The present experimental limit on the neutron EDM is five to six orders-of-magnitude larger than the predictions of the Standard Model of elementary particles. Many theories beyond the Standard Model predict a value for the neutron EDM that is between these two values. I will discuss the progress towards new measurements of the neutron EDM that hope to achieve sensitivities that are factors of 100-1000 times better than the present limit.
