Description

The ability to manipulate or measure a particle's spin played a key role in the rise of the Standard Model (SM), and it continues to be crucial to the elucidation of physics that the SM cannot explain. Hints, e.g., to the origin of dark matter, of the cosmic surfeit of baryons, or of the weak scale could conceivably come from experiments that exploit spin degrees of freedom. I will offer a perspective of the discovery opportunities, drawing examples from a broad range of experiments at the precision frontier.
