Together with collaborators at a number of institutions including Berkeley, Caltech, Duke, Los Alamos and MIT Doug Beck and his research group are developing an exciting new experiment to search for an electric dipole moment of the neutron. This is an intrinsically time-reversal violating quantity that is related to the observed preponderance of matter over antimatter in today's universe. In this connection, we are developing tools and techniques for handling polarized 3He at cryogenic temperatures as an integral part of the experiment.
