“Precision tests of particle physics with cold molecules”
In recent years a number of experiments have demonstrated the sensitivity of
particular diatomic molecules to test particle physics theories, that allow for
example for a non-zero electric-dipole moment of the electron. In this talk I
will present why such molecules are ideal test-beds to test fundamental physics
theories, and how the methods we work on to create cold samples of molecules
might lead to the next generation of spectroscopic precision tests.
