The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation have give me a Fundamental Physics Innovation Lectureship Award to visit Michigan State where I’ll be hosted by Jaideep Singh. I’ll present on the possibility of using molecular ions, in particular radioactive molecules with heavy octupole deformed nuclei, for searching for new physics beyond the standard model. We’ll discuss the possibility of setting up a tabletop ion trapping experiment at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams which could study rare isotopes and molecules containing such isotopes at high precision.
