Molecular Physics seminar

Precision experiments with cooled and stored ions

by Prof. Klaus Blaum (MPI for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg, Germany)

FB52 ()


The presentation will concentrate on recent applications of Penning traps in atomic and nuclear physics with exotic ions, namely high-accuracy mass measurements of short-lived radionuclides and /g/-factor determinations of the bound-electron in highly-charged, hydrogen-like ions. These experiments are dedicated, e.g., to test of fundamental symmetries and the determination of fundamental constants. Also the new Cryogenic Storage Ring project at MPIK and its future atomic and molecular physics program will be discussed.
