The proton EDM (pEDM) proposal to DOE, for a storage ring proton EDM experiment with sensitivity 10-29 e·cm, is available here: The proton EDM proposal is available from the EDM internal web page proton EDM proposal (2011). A username and password is needed. Polarized protons at their magic momentum of 0.7 GeV/c are stored in an all-electric storage ring, while high efficiency internal polarimeters monitor the proton transverse spin components as a function of time.

The deuteron EDM (dEDM) proposal as submitted to the BNL PAC in April 2008 is given here:
The proton and deuteron EDM experiments at 10-29 e·cm are 103 to 104 times better than current EDM limits in terms of sensitivity to quark and gluon EDM, and the QCD theta parameter. They probe CP-violation at a range predicted by speculative theories beyond the standard model. The proton, deuteron and neutron EDM searches are complementary and combined together they will provide the source of the CP-violation if a non-zero EDM value is found in any of them. If CP-violation is found at that level they could shed light on the Baryon/anti-Baryon asymmetry mystery of our universe (BAU).
