Neutron Mirror Neutron Oscillation: Phenomenological Implications and Experimental Limits

Zurab Berezhiani, Univ. of L'Aquila and Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, L'Aquila, Italy
Bldg. 4500N, Weinberg Auditorium, Rm I-126

Oscillation of the neutron (n) into mirror neutron (n'), its mass degenerate twin from a parallel dark world, can be a rather fast process, faster than the neutron decay itself in contrast to the neutron-antineutron oscillation which characteristic time is experimentally limited from below by several years. I will discuss phenomenological and astrophysical implications of n-n' oscillation, the recent experimental status, and possible future experiments for its search.
