2) This design was originally developed for measuring PV neutron spin rotation in solid targets by Ref.
Using the vector meson exchange model of the weak nucleon-nucleon interaction developed by DDH and a model dependent representation of the strong interaction, Avishai and Grange calculated the neutron spin rotation through a liquid parahydrogen target and obtained [3]
Whenever the cantilever was moved over the quartz, the spins of individual electrons influenced the magnet, and the cantilever changed vibration frequency slightly.
In the resonator sample, the parallel spin component feels a higher potential than the antiparallel component in the magnetic layers.
