Magnetic and Electric Dipole Moments in Storage Rings

  • Yannis K. Semertzidis
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 741)


Electric and magnetic dipole moments of fundamental particles had a large influence in shaping the standard model in the past and continue to play a significant role at present by restricting the many possible expansions of the standard model. In this chapter I describe, in particular, the present status and prospects of the dipole moments in storage rings experiments, in the context of other significant electric and magnetic dipole moment efforts.
