Calculation of geometric phases in electric dipole searches with trapped spin-1/2 particles based on direct solution of the Schrodinger equation
PHYSICAL REVIEW A, 89(5).
Geometric phases of trapped particles have been recognized as potential sources of false signals in experiments searching for a permanent electric dipole moment of the neutron. We present a new analysis that treats the spin fully quantum mechanically and uses the same model system as previous works based on semi-classical methods. The results are similar but exhibit significant differences in some respects.
