Searches for symmetry violations and new forces
Precise measurements of observables in beta decay allow testing the symmetries of the Standard Model or searching for physics beyond at the low-energy and high-intensity frontier. A non-exhaustive overview of this field will be presented based on selected state-of-the-art measurements using a variety of techniques. With the precision of these measurements reaching the per mille level small...

Searches for permanent electric dipole moments
Symmetries and conservation laws determine the interactions between particles and the structures in which matter organizes itself. Some of the most fundamental symmetries in physics are the space-time symmetries of Lorentz transformations - where the laws of physics are unchanged under boosts and rotations - and CPT - the combination of charge conjugation (C), parity inversion (P) and time...

Low energy precision tests of the Standard Model
Observing atomic parity violation in atomic systems provides a unique possibility for testing the predictions of the Standard Model at low momentum transfer. The nuclear spin independent part of the weak interactions permits the extraction of the weak mixing angle or Weinberg angle. A sensitivity beyond the most sensitive determination of this parameter in atomic system, i.e. in a cesium...
