The Neutron EDM Experiment at TRIUMF

The neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM) is sensitive to CP violation arising from new physics beyond the standard model. The experiment at TRIUMF will feature a new superfluid helium source of ultracold neutrons (UCN) so that the statistical sensitivity can be improved over previous experiments. The experimental goal for Phase II operations at TRIUMF is a factor of 30 improvement in precision over the previous best nEDM experiment. At the new level of statistical precision to be reached by this experiment, a host of systematic effects must be handled to higher precision than ever before. This talk will provide an overview of our project, featuring recent progress on UCN source installation, and updates on our studies of magnetic field generation and characterization for the nEDM experiment.
