Tuesday, March 13th: Diatomic Molecules as Quantum Tools

Event Date: 

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - 4:00pm

Event Date Details: 

Refreshments served at 3:40pm.

Event Location: 

  • Webb Hall 1100
  • Physics Colloquium

Our group is pursuing a wide range of physics goals using diatomic molecules.  This talk will highlight two ongoing projects: first, the search for the electric dipole moment of the electron, a CP-violating effect predicted in many extensions to the Standard Model of particle physics; and second, the development of methods for direct laser cooling of molecules.
