Low-energy weak-interaction studies

  • N. Severijns


An overview is given of the present status of low-energy tests of the Standard Model in nuclear beta-decay and neutron decay, covering the unitarity problem, searches for right-handed currents, scalar- and tensor-type currents, tests of time-reversal violation, as well as experiments to set the neutrino mass scale. In view of the large amount of ongoing and planned experiments in this sector, many new results can be expected in the coming decade.
