Our group applies a variety of atomic, molecular, & optical physics techniques to answer fundamental questions in nuclear and particle physics. Our passion is creating, manipulating, and detecting spin-polarized nuclei. Our long terms goals are to:
- Observe time-reversal symmetry violation in nuclei, which may explain the origin of matter in the Universe
- Study the evolution of the elements by measuring rare nuclear reactions using optical single atom detection
- Construct long term memory & storage for quantum information processing using nuclear spin qubits
- Study lung disease using hyperpolarized noble gas magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
We are a part of the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory/Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (NSCL/FRIB) and the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Michigan State University.
