Key questions

- Which fundamental symmetries are conserved in nature?

  • What is the origin of the matter dominance in the universe?

- Are there new sources of CP violation?

- What are the properties of antimatter?

- What are the properties of the neutrino?

- Are there otherforces than the four known ones?

- Are there new particles and what is their role in the universe?

- What are the precise values of the fundamental constants?

1. Fundamental symmetries

a. Time reversal and CP violation in the quark sector

e.g. permanent EDM‘s

matter – anti-matter asymmetry

a nonzero particle EDM violates P, T and, assuming

CPT conservation, also CP

investigate different systems,

providing complementary

information on different

sources of CP violation 

  • for p, d EDM exps. good
  • prospects with ring
  • (e.g. plans for COSY)
  • R- and D-corr. in  decay
  • (nTRV @ PSI)

some current EDM constraints :

slide8

1. Fundamental symmetries

b. Parity non-conservation in atoms and ions

e.g. APV: test of the SM through measurements of the Weinberg angle

  • Future measurements:
  • - trapped atoms and ions with
  • enhanced APV effect, in casu
    • Fr, Ba+, Ra+
  • - measurements on series of isotopes

APV is complementary to parity-violating electron scattering (APVin graph)

for determining effective weak couplings of quarks and search for new physics beyond SM

Note: experiments at low energy very clean since radiative corrections are minimal

WG5 - N. Severijns - Town Meeting, Madrid, May 31 - June 2, 2010

slide9

1. Fundamental symmetries

c. CPT conservation and Lorentz invariance

CPT: e.g. spectroscopy of - antiprotonic atoms (pbar-p, pbar-He)

(AD-CERN) - antihydrogen (i.e. e+-pbar atom)

AD-CERN

Need for future facilities: ELENA, FLAIR

Lorentz violation: test frame dependence of observables

close interaction with theorists is essential

WG5 - N. Severijns - Town Meeting, Madrid, May 31 - June 2, 2010

2. Neutrino masses, oscillations and mixing matrix

Neutrino masses

 hierarchy

 Dirac or Majorana particle ??

- direct measurements: KATRIN spectrometer, sensitivity = 0.2 eV

MARE calorimeters, phase-II sensit. = 0.2 eV

- 0 decay: CUORE (130Te), SuperNEMO (150Nd or 82Se),

GERDA (76Ge): sensitivity ≈ 0.05 – 0.3 eV

needs: - enrichment of isotopes

- experiments to support matrix elements calculations

2. Neutrino masses, oscillations and mixing matrix

flavor eigenstates mass eigenstates 

atmospheric reactor solar

Neutrino

mixing

matrix:

oscillation experiments (e.g. Double Chooz)  determine size of 13

if 13 large  search for CP violation in lepton sector (phase )

 superbeams, neutrino factories, beta-beams (esp. if 13 < 0.02)
