Accelerator Related Issues for Storage Ring EDM Searches

Andreas Lehrach (Jülich)

The discovery of a non-zero EDM (Electric Dipole Moment) would be a signal for "new physics" beyond the standard model. EDM experiments with charged particles are only possible at storage rings. As a first step towards EDM searches in storage rings we proposed R&D work to be carried out at the Cooler Synchrotron COSY, then perform a first direct EDM measurement of a charged particle in a storage ring at COSY and on a longer time scale construct a dedicated storage ring. In this presentations accelerator related issues towards a dedicated EDM storage ring are discussed.
