  • View of the ultracold neutron trap, comprising 5,139 permanent magnets arranged in an asymmetric bowl-shaped array, during magnetic field mapping with a robotic arm. The strong magnetic field near the trap surface repels ultracold neutrons, preventing the neutrons from contacting the surface, with gravity preventing the extremely low energy neutrons from bouncing out of the trap.
