A table-top particle physics program to probe the electron's electric dipole moment with cold molecules


Sep 25, 2023

PhD position available

We have an opening for a PhD candidate to join our experimental team. The thesis work will exploit the current setup employing BaF molecules and the newly implemented experimental method. The all-optical state preparation, spin precession and the reado...

Summerschool on low-energy precision physics

We are organising a summer school for PhD students and postdocs on the beautiful Dutch island Ameland. It is about the search for new physics with low-energy precision tests. It is planned from 2-7 juli 2023. You can find out more (and sign up!) here.

Our paper got highlighted on

Our paper on the deceleration and trapping of SrF molecules got a nice accompanying article on, that explains the main idea of our work.   This is the original publication: Here you can find the article: (Link)
