Status of neutron magnetic moment?

    I believe to remember some recent comments about the measurement of neutron magnetic moment or some other quantity of this particle, which was not very well in agreement with standard model calculations. I can not remember which measurement it was, or when. Can anyone help my poor neurons?

    Neutrons could perhaps become highly magnetic at ceirtain temperatures. Why don't you post this at physics help?

    Er... it was Standard Model related, more than "physics help". I believe to remember that it was a measure just in the border (2-3 deviations or so) of standard model, thus sort of hint of new physics and blah blah.

    Sorry it seems I have already used the 100% of my brain :-) and I can not remember more details.

    Hmm my memory returned. It is the muon anomalous moment which is now slightly beyond the standard model calculation. No the neutron :-(
