There are several reports on the ultracold neutron anomalies observed in the neutron bottle experiments in which ultracold neutrons (UCN) with the velocity below about 6 m/s were stored for a long time, experiencing total reflections even at normal incidence to the material mirror surface composing the closed vessel.
Ultracold neutrons (UCN) with the velocity of about 6 m/s can be stored in a closed vessel called a neutron bottle and therefore are utilized in various kinds of fundamental physics experiments on neutrons [1].
