Description

The Electric Dipole Moments (EDMs) provide an unique way of probing CP violations. The search for neutron and atom EDMs has reached very high precision after many decades of effort. I will discuss the implications of the EDM search on the theory of SM, SUSY, as well as the Baryogenesis scenarios. In particular, based on the study of the interplay of EDMs and electroweak Baryogenesis in MSSM, we learn that the wino-driven scenario has been ruled out by current EDM bounds, and the bino-driven scenario is the only viable scenario. With the next generation of EDM experiments that are projected to push the sensitivity by another 2 to 3 orders of magnitude, the parameter space of the bino-driven scenario can also be fully covered.
