First results are presented from an experiment that aims at the simultaneous determination of
both transversal polarization components of electrons emitted in the decay of free neutrons –
two observables that have never before been addressed experimentally. They reveal first-order
sensitivity to real and imaginary parts of the exotic scalar and tensor interactions.
