Recent measurements and future plans for photopion experiments with the CB-TAPS detector system in the A2 hall at the Mainzer Microtron will be presented. First, a measurement with linearly polarized photons and an unpolarized liquid-hydrogen target will be discussed. The beam asymmetry along with differential cross sections provide the most stringent test to date of the predictions of Chiral...

Electric Dipole Moments (EDMs) of leptons, nucleons, atoms, and molecules are great probes of new sources of CP violation originating from physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). In this talk I will discuss the central role that QCD and chiral dynamics play in the interpretation of current experimental searches. After an overview of the physics reach of various EDM searches, I will...

Light Meson decays provide a unique laboratory to probe fundamental QCD symmetries and to search for new physics beyond the Standard Model. A comprehensive Primakoff experimental program at Jefferson Laboratory (Jlab) is aimed at gathering high precision measurements on the two-photon decay widths and transition form factors at low Q2 of π0, η and η′ via the Primakoff effect.
