LIMIT ON ${{\boldsymbol n}}{{\boldsymbol n}^{\,'}}$ OSCILLATIONS INSPIRE search

Lee and Yang (LEE 1956 ) proposed the existence of mirror world in an attempt to restore global parity symmetry. A possible candidate for dark matter. Limits depend on assumptions about fields ${{\mathit B}}$ and ${{\mathit B}^{\,'}}$. See the papers for details. See BEREZHIANI 2018 for a recent discussion.

CNTR UCN, ${{\mathit B}}$ field on $\&$ off
1  The ${{\mathit B}}$ field was set to (0.09, 0.12, 0.21) G. Limits on oscillation time are valid for any mirror field ${{\mathit B}^{\,'}}$ in ($0.08 - 0.17$) G, and for aligned fields ${{\mathit B}}$ and ${{\mathit B}^{\,'}}$. For larger values of ${{\mathit B}^{\,'}}$, the limits are significantly reduced.
2  Losses of neutrons due to oscillations to mirror neutrons would be maximal when the magnetic fields ${{\mathit B}}$ and ${{\mathit B}^{\,'}}$ in the two worlds were equal. Hence the scan over ${{\mathit B}}$ by ALTAREV 2009A: the limit applies for any ${{\mathit B}^{\,'}}$ over the given range. At ${{\mathit B}^{\,'}}$ = 0, the limit is 141 s (95$\%$ CL).
