Abstract
This paper presents a novel technique to search for neutrino magnetic momen ts. A carefully timed oscillating magnetic field can split the neutrino's e nergy states and thus cause the helicity to "tumble" as it travels. The ult imate sensitivity of the technique depends strongly on the magnetic field s trength, so the estimates presented here are very speculative. The original talk in Monterey discussed this and several other search methods, most of which were shown to be fruitless-these additional studies are not included in this paper.
