Abstract

Atomic spin comagnetometers are among the most sensitive devices for testing Lorentz symmetry of fermions. In Princeton, we have used our rotating comagnetometer to set the most stringent limits on CPT-odd and CPT-even Lorentz violating effects in neutrons. However, gyroscopic pickup of the Earth’s rotation represents a significant systematic effect limiting sensitivity. To suppress this systematic, we have installed a Rb-21Ne comagnetometer at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station with data collection being performed over the course of the austral winter.
