Search for slight violations of the Pauli principle
Ignat'ev A. Yu., Kuz'min V. A.
It might be possible to search for slight violations of the Pauli principle by identifying and counting anomalous atoms with an incorrect (excessive) filling of electron shells. Estimates show that this approach would be several orders of magnitude more efficient than searching for x-ray transitions in Nal (Tl) which are forbidden by the Pauli principle.
