We present a review of the motivation and results of recent experiments which utilize ultracold neutrons for measurements of neutron beta decay. Because these experiments hinge critically on the available ultracold neutron source technology, we also review the status of ultracold neutron source development, emphasizing the Los Alamos ultracold neutron facility and the ongoing beta decay research program sited there.
