We are searching for an unknown force that could couple to mass using neutron scattering from a noble gas. The neutron is a chargeless massive particle with a long lifetime, which consequently is suitable for the precision measurement of a small interaction with a range of the order of 1 nm by measurements of the momentum transfer distribution. We measured neutron scattering at the low-divergence beam branch on the BL05 NOP beamline in the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). We measured 105 scattering events and report our most recent analysis.
