Abstract

We present new ideas on tests of fundamental symmetries in polarization experiments at the NICA facility. Specifically, we explore the possibilities of high precision tests of the Standard Model by parity violation and searches of Beyond the Standard Model semistrong breaking of time reversal invariance in double polarized proton-deuteron scattering, taking advantage of high intensity beams of polarized protons and deuterons available at NICA. In both cases, we propose to use the new technique of polarized beam with precessing horizontal polarizations, and polarized deuterons are the favored choice. An external target in the extracted beam is optional for the parity violation experiment, which requires furnishing Nuclotron and/or new Booster with very modest new instrumentation. One should not overlook this potential for substantial broadening of the spin physics horizon at the NICA facility.
