Abstract: We performed ultracold neutron storage measurements to search for additional losses due to neutron (n)
to mirror-neutron (n') oscillations as a function of an applied magnetic field B. In the presence of a mirror
magnetic field B', ultracold neutron losses would be maximal for B ~ B'. We did not observe any
indication for nn0 oscillations and placed a lower limit on the oscillation time of tau_nn' > 12.0 s at 95% C.L.
for any B' between 0 and 12.5 microT.
