Abstract: Fast neutrons from fission or spallation, which are created with MeV energies, can be cooled to < 300 neV to become ultracold neutrons (UCNs). This 12 orders-of-magnitude energy reduction allows them to be trapped in material bottles or magnetic traps and be studied for tens of minutes. High-precision UCN experiments using UCNs have impact in nuclear physics, particle physics, fundamental symmetries, cosmology, and condensed matter physics.
