Current research:

Study of physics beyond the Standard Model through beta decay of trapped nuclei. The atoms are produced by an accelerator and trapped (and if necessary polarized) in a Magneto-Optical trap with laser beams.  The decay products are measured by detectors.


Prior research:

Study of the internal structure of the pi meson and the photon by diffractive dissociation to jets that carry information on their internal structure.
