One of the main puzzles in contemporary physics is the asymmetry between matter and antimatter in the observable Universe. In our current understanding, one of the necessary ingredients to explain this phenomenon is the violation of CP symmetry (or equivalently TRIV). However it has only been observed in the weak interaction and with a very small amplitude, therefore searches of new mechanisms of CP violation in the strong interaction are of scientific importance. In this context, the transmission of polarized epithermal neutrons in resonances of polarized compound nuclei that exhibit large PV effects offers a possibility to search for T-odd effects that constitute a null test for TRIV and that are complementary ro other searches, like the nEDM.
