Particle Physics Seminar

Date: Wednesday 24th May 2006

Title: New forces coupling to intrinsic spin

Speaker: Dr Clive Speake (Birmingham)


I will give a brief overview of laboratory searches for new macroscopic forces (beyond the standard model) coupling to instrinsic spin. I will describe progress on an experiment near completion in Birmingham that searches for violation of time reversal symmetry on a macroscopic scale. Such an interaction could be due to the exchange of axion-like particles.

This Particle Physics Seminar will take place in Seminar Room 2 (room 106), Physics West, at 1315. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served at 1300.
