nEDMThe possible existence of a non-zero electric dipole moment of the neutron is of great fundamental interest and directly impacts our understanding of the nature of electro-weak and strong interactions. The experimental search for this moment has the potential to reveal new sources of T and CP violation and to challenge calculations that propose extensions to the Standard Model. In addition, the small value for the neutron EDM continues to raise the issue of why the strength of the CP-violating terms in the QCD Lagrangian are so small. This seems to suggest the existence of a new fundamental symmetry that blocks strong CP-violating processes.
