Abstract

We present the first steps towards the realization of a novel experimental scheme to measure β-ν correlations in the β decay of 6He, for the purpose of Fundamental Interaction studies. Our method is based on a novel use of an ion trapping device, the Electrostatic Ion Beam Trap (EIBT) coupled to a d+t neutron generator. The EIBT which has not been previously considered for Fundamental Interaction studies, exhibits potentially very significant advantages over other state of the art experimental schemes aimed at precision measurements of the β-ν angular correlation coefficient.
