Summary of "Implications of an Improved Neutron-Antineutron Oscillation Search for Baryogenesis: A Minimal Effective Theory Analysis."

Future neutron-antineutron (n-n[over ¯]) oscillation experiments, such as at the European Spallation Source and the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, aim to find first evidence of baryon number violation. We investigate implications of an improved n-n[over ¯] oscillation search for baryogenesis via interactions of n-n[over ¯] mediators, parametrized by an effective field theory (EFT). We find that even in a minimal EFT setup there is overlap between the parameter space probed by n-n[over ¯] oscillation and the region that can realize the observed baryon asymmetry of the Universe. The mass scales of exotic new particles are in the tera-electron-volt-peta-electron-volt regime, inaccessible at the LHC or its envisioned upgrades. Given the innumerable high energy theories that can match, or resemble, the minimal EFT that we discuss, future n-n[over ¯] oscillation experiments could probe many viable theories of baryogenesis beyond the reach of other experiments.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A trace element with the atomic symbol B, atomic number 5, and atomic weight 10.81. Boron-10, an isotope of boron, is used as a neutron absorber in BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY.

El Nino-Southern Oscillation or ENSO is a cycle of extreme alternating warm El Niño and cold La Nina events which is the dominant year-to-year climate pattern on Earth. Both terms refer to large-scale changes in sea-surface temperature across the eastern tropical Pacific. ENSO is associated with a heightened risk of certain vector-borne diseases.

The measurement of frequency or oscillation changes.

A branch of applied ethics that studies the value implications of practices and developments in life sciences, medicine, and health care.

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
