Abstract

Recent results in the search for a T-violating hyperfine interaction of the spin-1/2 thallium nucleus in the molecule thallium fluoride (TIF) are reported. The interaction is of interest because it violates both parity and time reversal invariance and is of a rather general form. To detect the interaction, the hyperfine magnetic resonance frequency of the T1 nucleus (due principally to the spin-rotation coupling) was observed in the presence of strong external electric field E. A tenfold improvement over previous results was obtained, placing new constraints on the electric dipole moment (EDM) of the proton, the EDM of the electron, the T-violating tensor coupling strength of the weak interaction, and the Schiff moment of the T1 nucleus.
