Tests of parity and time reversal invariance in neutron-nucleus scattering

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

I'll discuss the experiments in which parity violation has been measured in low energy neutron-nucleus scattering. The interest is two-fold: to understand how parity violation in the nucleon-nucleon (NN) interaction manifests itself in a complicated many-body system and to show that the large enhancements observed make this a good laboratory to search for violations of TRI. Further, the procedure of relating the measured parity violating asymmetries to the under-lying NN interaction will be important in order to make the same connection in violation of TRI (or in limits). First, I'll make brief comments on some relevant features of low energy ... continued below

I'll discuss the experiments in which parity violation has been measured in low energy neutron-nucleus scattering. The interest is two-fold: to understand how parity violation in the nucleon-nucleon (NN) interaction manifests itself in a complicated many-body system and to show that the large enhancements observed make this a good laboratory to search for violations of TRI. Further, the procedure of relating the measured parity violating asymmetries to the under-lying NN interaction will be important in order to make the same connection in violation of TRI (or in limits). First, I'll make brief comments on some relevant features of low energy neutron scattering and then review the existing measurements of parity violation. I'll try to explain, at least qualitatively, the origin of the large enhancements observed. Finally, I'll describe the TRIPLE collaboration program to study parity violation and discuss planned experiments to search for violations of TRI. 23 refs.
