The Neutron EDM Experiment at TRIUMF

Abstract:  The neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM) is sensitive to CP violation arising from new physics beyond the standard model. The experiment at TRIUMF will feature a new superfluid helium source of ultracold neutrons (UCN) so that the statistical sensitivity can be improved over previous experiments. The experimental goal for Phase II operations at TRIUMF is a factor of 30 improvement in precision over the previous best nEDM experiment. At the new level of statistical precision to be reached by this experiment, a host of systematic effects must be handled to higher precision than ever before. This talk will provide an overview of our project, featuring recent progress on UCN source installation, and updates on our studies of magnetic field generation and characterization for the nEDM experiment.

Opening the Ab Initio Floodgates

Abstract:  The past decade has witnessed a staggering expansion in the range of applicability of ab initio many-body methods, enabling the use of the same nuclear interaction to describe few-body and medium-mass systems. I will report on recent developments in using the in medium similarity renormalization group (IM-SRG) to derive effective valence space interactions and operators. This approach incorporates the experience gained from large scale shell model investigations of nuclear structure, while eliminating the need for phenomenological adjustments and thus enhancing predictive power where no data exist. I will present selected results for isotopes ranging from lithium to cadmium, and discuss prospects for providing reliable many-body uncertainties.
