Research with precise experiments

We are doing research for elementary particle physics with precise measurements of the low-energy process.
The main experiments in Phi-lab is low-energy neutron experiments. In addition, we are developing experimental devices and doing research with other labs.

  1. Neutron lifetime measurement
    Neutron lifetime high precision measurement with detecting electrons emmitted from neutron beta-decay.
  1. crystal-EDM measurement
    T-violation search with neutron electric dipole moment measurement using crystal internal electric field.
  1. T-violation search
    T-violation search with compound nucleus.
  1. Short distance gravity
    Experiments for testing inverse square law of gravity with neutron-noble gas scattering.
  1. MTV(Mott Polarimetry for T-Violation experiment)
    8Searching for CP-violation of Lithium beta-decay. This experiment is collaboration with Murata-lab at Rikkyo university.
  1. Neutron-Antineutron oscillation search
    International experiment project for baryon-number-violating process search at ESS.
  1. Laboratry size neutron source
    小型の加速器を用いた中性子源の開発と応用・普及を進めています。 名古屋大学理工連携放射線科学研究推進として 名古屋大学内に小型加速器中性子源NUANSを建設しています。
  1. R&D of experimental device
    中性子輸送光学デバイスや中性子偏極素子、中性子検出器の開発など、 それぞれの実験・利用のために最適な中性子制御デバイスの開発研究を行っています。
