The possible existence of new weakly-coupled interactions of Nature with a range somewhere between atomic and macroscopic scales has been recently attracting more scientific attention. Still, not many experiments have been devoted to searching for interactions in this range that depend on the spin of one of both of the particles involved. I will explain some of the intellectual motivations  for pursuing this work and present two recent examples of searches that we have conducted recently using slow neutron measurements and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques.
