Research overview:
The new cold neutron spin interferometry has been developed based on two ideas in the principle. One is to split a cold neutron into the two spin eigenstates and to superpose them coherently using a new cold neutron spin interferometer. Another is to create versatile phenomena on neutron spin interferometry by changing the phase and states of the partial waves independently using spin dependent optical devices of which the performance depend on the neuron spin states. The cold neutron spin interferometry has remarkable advantages that it not only brings us versatile phonomena on cold neutron spin interferometry but also allows us easy observation of the interference with high intensity neutrons.
