Tests Of Fundamental Physics With Atomic Parity Violation in Ytterbium

Project description

From atomic nuclei to neutron stars, a novel test bench probes our particles

Hundreds of years of research by theorists and experimentalists, supported by tremendous technological advances in instrumentation and computing power, has shone significant light on the fundamental nature of our universe. From the handful of matter particles and the forces governing their interactions in atoms to the meaning of all this on the scale of our cosmos, we have come a long way. However, as is often the case, the more we know, the more we realise we do not yet know. The EU-funded YbFUN project is developing an innovative platform to investigate fundamental open questions with implications for systems ranging from atomic nuclei to neutron stars.
