Novel Quantum Effect Found: Spin-Rotation Coupling

It was predicted 30 years ago, now the effect was measured for the first time by scientists at TU Wien (Vienna): The neutron spin exhibits inertial effects. Mehr

Geht das nicht genauer?

Das Motto der Naturwissenschaft: Was man messen kann, messen. Was man nicht messen kann, messbar machen. Und was man schon gemessen hat, noch einmal exakter messen. Mehr

Probing of violation of Lorentz invariance by ultracold neutrons intheStandard Model Extension

We analyze a dynamics of ultracold neutrons (UCNs) caused by interactions violating Lorentz invariance within the Standard Model Extension (SME) (Colladay and Kostelecký (1997) and Kostelecký (2004)). We use the effective non–relativistic potential for interactions violating Lorentz invariance derived by Kostelecký and Lane (1999) and calculate contributions of these interactions to the transition frequencies of transitions between quantum gravitational states of UCNs bouncing in the gravitational field of the Earth. Using the experimental sensitivity of qBounce experiments we make some estimates of upper bounds of parameters of Lorentz invariance violation in the neutron sector of the SME which can serve as a theoretical basis for an experimental analysis. We show that an experimental analysis of transition frequencies of transitions between quantum gravitational states of unpolarized and polarized UCNs should allow to place some new constraints in comparison to the results adduced by Kostelecký and Russell (2011).

The Conundrum of the Decaying Neutron

Can dark matter be created when neutrons transform into protons? This is a hotly debated theory – but new analyses from TU Wien do not support this idea. Mehr

No sign of Symmetrons

A high-precision experiment led by TU Wien has set its sights on pinpointing the so-far hypothetical "symmetron fields" using the PF2 ultra-cold neutron source at the Institut Laue-Langevin in France. For the existence of symmetrons could provide an explanation for the mysterious dark energy. Mehr
