Physics & Astronomy Colloquium - Dr. Eric Cornell, JILA, University of Colorado

Title: "Microhertz spectroscopy, teraelectronvolt physics, and the origin of matter: A measurement of the electron’s electric dipole moment."

Friday, February 24, 2023
3:30pm – 4:30pm
Wilder 104 and Zoom
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Arts and Sciences, Lectures & Seminars

ABSTRACT: Any effort to understand the unfolding of the early universe has to reckon with our modern-day understanding of particle physics, and vice versa.   

The standard experimental tools for exploring these topics are: 1) large telescopes and 2) still larger particle accelerators. 

I will argue that a third approach, precision metrology, can complement the Big Two. I will describe a recently completed precision measurement 

on the humble electron, and discuss how such measurements can contribute to out our understanding of the Big (and the Little) Picture.
