Electrostatic Calculations for a nEDM Experiment
Arts and Sciences
Physics and Astronomy
The need for high electric fields not directly obtainable with currently available high voltage power supplies are a concern for a number of nuclear physics experiments. In the search for the neutron Electric Dipole Moment, the precision of the experiment is dependent upon many variables. One such variable is the strength of the electric field that can be produced. In order to overcome the present limitations and obtain an electric potential of ~650kV, a method involving parallel-plate capacitors connected in parallel is under exploration. Approximations based off a number of assumptions for this method have suggested that it is viable. Calculations of the voltage gain produced by the geometry specific to the experiment will be presented.
