Abstract

We discuss various possibilities to improve the sensitivity of parity and time reversal asymmetry measurements in gamma decaying nuclei. We compare the best known parity violating case180mHf to a similar isotope178mHf. Although the parity violation may not be as large, the 178 isomer is better suited to eliminate experimental systematic problems. We introduce a new detector to enhance the sensitivity of such measurements. Our first experiments indicate applicability of these detectors to P symmetry tests.
