Laboratory of Exotic Molecules and Atoms @ MIT

Our group is focused on the study of atoms and molecules containing short-lived radioactive nuclei for fundamental physics research. Precision measurements of their atomic and molecular structures provide a unique insight into the emergence of nuclear phenomena and the properties of nuclear matter at the limits of existence. Moreover, these radioactive systems have the potential to offer a new window for our exploration of the fundamental forces of nature and the search for new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics.
