Prospects of a baryon instability search in neutron-antineutron oscillations

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The purpose of this article is to review the current status and the future prospects for an experimental neutron-antineutron transition search. Traditional and new experimental techniques are discussed here. In the n {r_arrow} {anti n} search in experiments at existing reactors, it would be possible to increase the discovery potential up to four orders of magnitude for vacuum n {r_arrow} {anti n} transitions relative to the existing experimental level or to achieve the limit of {tau}{sub n-{anti n}{sup {approximately}}} 10{sup 10}s.. With dedicated future reactors and an ultimate experimental layout, it might be possible to reach the limit of 10{sup ... continued below

With dedicated future reactors and an ultimate experimental layout, it might be possible to reach the limit of 10{sup 11}s. Significant progress in an intranuclear n {r_arrow} {anti n} transition search expected to be made during the next decade by the SuperKamiokande and Icarus detectors. It can be matched, or even exceeded, in a new alternative approach, where unstable long-lived isotopes of technetium are searched in non radioactive deep-mined ores.
