Today I will present a talk with Jon Engel on FRIB Day 1 Science Opportunities for Fundamental Symmetries. This talk is part of a workshop that is a satellite meeting of the 2017 (US) Low Energy (Nuclear Physics) Community Meeting which is being hosted by Physics Division at Argonne National Lab. The main thrust of the talk will be the need for:
- continued progress on theory and experiments of the nuclear structure of pear-shaped nuclei such as Radium-225, Radon-221/223, and Protactinium-229 in order to both interpret results and identify promising EDM candidates
- development of isotope harvesting of these isotopes at FRIB – see Greg Severin‘s talk
- development of experimental techniques needed for beta decay spectroscopy and polarimetry
- development of experimental techniques needed for optical “EDM-type” search techniques of atoms and molecules trapped in solid
- continued progress on the Radium-225 Laser Trap EDM experiment
