Search for Neutron to Anti-Neutron Transitions at HFIR/ORNL

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The transition of neutron to anti-neutron might be the first observed signal of the baryon instability long-awaited in Grand Unification models and required for the explanation of baryon asymmetry in the universe. A newly-proposed experiment to search for neutron-antineutron transitions at High Flux Isotope Reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory can improve the discovery potential by factor of {approximately} 1,000 relative to the existing limits. Further prospects of n -> n(overbar) search are also discussed in this paper.
