The goal of the TRIUMF Ultra-Cold Advanced Neutron (TUCAN) Collaboration is to successfully make an new measurement of the neutron electric dipole measurement (nEDM) experiment with an uncertainty of 1 × 10−27 e-cm in 400 days of run time, a one order of magnitude improvement compared to the current world’s best. The experiment is unique in using a spallation-driven superfluid helium (He-II) source of ultracold neutrons (UCN). We are now at the stage of upgrading the UCN source to produce world-leading UCN densities, using a new He-II cryostat that has undergone cryogenic testing at KEK in 2020-21. We are also assembling the experimental components of the EDM experiment, including a magnetically shielded room, coils, and atomic magnetometers.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
