Abstract

An electron can possess an intrinsic spin- electric dipole moment (EDM) only by virtue of some Interaction that violates parity (P) and time reversal (T) invariance. The possible existence of an electron EDM is thus of interest in connection with the problem of CP violation, which is equivalent to T violation. Our recent experiment to search for the electron EDM will be described, and results will be presented.
