Scientific Programme

The workshop focuses on the physics at the low energy, high precision frontier without neglecting complementary approaches. It aims at highlighting present activities and future developments. The Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) itself offers unique opportunities for experiments in this realm: it houses the world's most powerful proton cyclotron and the highest intensity low momentum pion and muon beams. Moreover, in 2010, the high intensity ultracold neutron source will start its operation.
  • Low energy precision tests of the Standard Model

  • Searches for symmetry violations

    e.g. T, CP, CPT, Lorentz, Lepton flavor, Baryon number

  • Searches for new forces

    e.g. spin dependent interactions, modifications of gravity or weak interaction

  • Precision measurements of fundamental constants

  • Fundamental physics with cold and ultracold neutrons

  • Searches for permanent electric dipole moments

  • Precision magnetometry

  • Precision experiments with pions and muons

  • Exotic atoms and molecules

  • Advanced muon sources

  • Advanced ultracold neutron sources

  • Advanced detector technologies
