The nuclear electric dipole moment

Nodoka Yamanaka (Hosted by Pastore), University of Massachusetts

The electric dipole moment (EDM) of nuclei is a very sensitive probe of CP violation beyond the standard model which may be measured in future experiment using storage rings. Nuclei are interesting since the effect of CP violation may be enhanced by nuclear many-body effects.

In this talk, we present the results of our theoretical evaluation of the EDM of light nuclei using few-body methods, and review the current understanding of the nuclear structure in the point of view of the CP violation.
