The consideration is presented of possible neutron experiments to search for
new short-range spin-dependent forces.
The spin-dependent nucleon-nucleon interaction between neutron and nuclei
may cause different effects: phase shift of a neutron wave in neutron interferometers
of different kind, in particular of the Lloyd mirror configuration, neutron spin rotation
in the pseudo-magnetic field, and transverse deflection of polarized neutron beam by a slab of substance.
Estimates of sensitivity of these experiments are performed.
