Abstract: The existence of a mirror world holding a copy of our ordinary particle spectrum could lead to
oscillations between the neutron(n) and its mirror partner(n'). Such oscillations could manifest
themselves in storage experiments with ultracold neutrons whose storage lifetime would depend on the
applied magnetic field. Here, extended details and measurements from the first dedicated experimental
search for nn' oscillations published in[G.Ban,K.Bodek,M.Daum,R.Henneck,S.Heule,M.Kasprzak,

magnetic field and its direction. However, at present no significant change in the averaged UCN counts
with respect to the applied magnetic field has been found.
