Neutron to mirror-neutron oscillations in the presence of mirror magnetic fields

We performed ultracold neutron storage measurements to search for additional losses due to neutron (n) to mirror-neutron (n) oscillations as a function of an applied magnetic field B. In the presence of a mirror magnetic field B, ultracold neutron losses would be maximal for BB. We did not observe any indication for nn oscillations and placed a lower limit on the oscillation time of τnn>12.0s at 95% C.L. for any B between 0 and 12.5μT.
