Researchers Seeking the Electric Dipole Moment of Electrons

IFF-News July 19, 2010


Do electrons have an electric dipole moment, as popular physics theories such as supersymmetry predict? Researchers from the Institute of Solid State Research, the Czech Republic and the USA want to find the answer to this fundamental question of physics. In order to improve the precision of previous measurements, they have created a new material with the aid of the Jülich supercomputer JUROPA. The scientists report on this in the current issue of "Nature Materials".
