Low Energy Precision Physics

We perform precision tests of the Standard Model, and searches for new physics, using experimental methods at the interface of particle physics, atomic physics, and nuclear physics.

Current projects include several different experimental approaches, seeking to understand the presence of matter in the universe through the electric dipole moments of quantum systems:

PanEDM at the Institut Laue-Langevin seeks to measure the neutron's permanent electric dipole moment with energy sensitivity approaching 10-23 eV.
The new project EDMn explores the ultimate limits of modern technology for precision measurements with ultracold neutrons.
Precision measurements of noble gas nuclear spins, using laser spectroscopy and magnetic resonance.
High-density ultracold neutron sources.
