In the past one and a half year a decent nonrelativistic picture of our arrival time experiment [S. Das & D. Dürr, Sci. Rep. 9: 2242 (2019)] has emerged (see e.g., [S. Das, M. Nöthe and D. Dürr, Phys. Rev. A 99, 052124 (2019)])). In this talk I will quickly summarise the current state of affairs and motivate the need for a relativistic investigation. I will discuss analytic separability of the Dirac equation in cylindrical coordinates and the so-called M.I.T. bag boundary condition used for confining a particle in a box (originally proposed for modelling quark confinement in hadrons). Analytical solutions will be presented for a particle moving within a 1/\rho-waveguide. Lastly, if time permits, a new implementation of our experiment will be discussed, which exploits the interaction of a neutron's anomalous magnetic moment with an electric field (cf. Aharonov Casher effect).
