Responsible coordinator of the module PH2212 is Peter Fierlinger.
Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Neutrons are powerful tools that can be used to search for new physics beyond the Standard Model, including to probe energy regimes inaccessible to accelerator-based experiments. In this informal lecture series, we will give an overview of the fundamental questions that may be investigated with these particles and discuss the state-of-the-art techniques employed in this field of research. The series will follow a new format, with both normal lectures as well as complementary seminar-style discussion of relevant research papers. Active student participation is welcomed and encouraged in both components.

Description of exams and course work
In a written exam the learning outcome is tested using comprehension questions and sample problems.
In accordance with §12 (8) APSO the exam can be done as an oral exam. In this case the time duration is 25 minutes.
There is a possibility to take the exam at the end of the semester.
