"Towards weak interaction studies in Francium"

Dr. Luis Orozco, and the FrPNC Collaboration
Joint Quantum Institute
Department of Physics
University of Maryland

Francium, a radioactive element, is the heaviest alkali. Its atomic and nuclear structure makes it an ideal laboratory to study the weak interaction at low energy. I will present our proposal and progress towards weak interaction measurements at TRIUMF, the National Canadian Accelerator in Vancouver. We can now laser trap and cool in line with the accelerator and have started spectroscopic studies that give information on the nuclear structure: hyperfine anomaly measurements. Future includes measurement of the weak charge and the nuclear anapole moment in a chain of francium isotopes.  Supported by NSF and DOE from the USA; TRIUMF, NRC and NSERC from Canada; and CONACYT from Mexico.

Presentation: OCNPS 200 @ 3:00 pm
Refreshments: Atrium @ 2:30 pm
