Laser spectroscopy studies of short-lived radioactive isotopes at the limits of existence. Experiments are performed at different facilities worldwide such as ISOLDE, CERN (Switzerland), FRIB (US), TRIUMF (Canada), and Jyväskylä (Finland).
How do nuclear phenomena emerge from the fundamental forces of nature? Can we constrain the properties of nuclear matter in extreme conditions from our understanding of finite nuclei? What is the role of the electroweak interactions in the description of nuclei?
Our group has pioneered the study of short-lived radioactive molecules. These molecular systems offer new opportunities for research in many-body physics, astrophysics, nuclear structure, and fundamental physics.
