[en] The MORA (M atter’s O rigin from the R adioA ctivity of trapped and oriented ions) project aims at measuring with unprecedented precision the D correlation in the nuclear beta decay of trapped and oriented ions. The D correlation offers the possibility to search for new CP-violating interactions, complementary to searches done at the LHC and with electric dipole moments. Technically, MORA uses an innovative in-trap orientation method which combines the high trapping efficiency of a transparent Paul trap with laser orientation techniques. The trapping, detection, and laser setups are under development. The project will first focus on the proof-of-principle of the in-trap laser orientation technique, before the actual measurement of the D correlation in the decay of 23Mg+ ions is undertaken firstly at JYFL and then later, at GANIL, with full sensitivity to new physics.
