Probing physics beyond the Standard Model in neutron and nuclear beta decay

06.11.2019 11:15 – 12:15

Precise measurements of observables in beta decay allow testing the symmetries of the Standard Model, or searching for new physics at the low-energy frontier. Such measurements provide information on physics beyond the Standard Model that is complementary to direct searches at the Large Hadron Collider.
The main challenges in order to further improve the sensitivity to new physics are to reach per mil precision levels and possibly beyond, while keeping control over systematics and small Standard Model effects that then start playing a role.
A non-exhaustive overview of this field and future prospects will be presented based on selected, recent and planned state-of-the-art measurements that use a variety of techniques.
