We have recently embarked on a reserach program to measure minute, possible changes in parameters of beta decay, in order to probe effects that belong to phenomena of "beyond the standar model"nature. Trapped radioactive atoms and ions present exciting opportunities for the study of fundamental interactions and symmetries. For example, detecting beta decay in a trap can probe the minute experimental signal that originates from possible tensor or scalar terms in the weak interaction. Such scalar...

Trapped radioactive atoms and ions present exciting opportunities for the study of fundamental interactions and symmetries. For example, detecting beta decay in a trap can probe the minute experimental signal that originates from possible tensor or scalar terms in the weak interaction. Such scalar or tensor terms affect the angular correlation between a neutrino and an electron in the beta-decay process, thus probing new physics of beyond-the-standard-model nature. Traps are mandatory for such...

This position offers an opportunity to do Heavy Ion Physics with the ATLAS detector at LHC. ATLAS collaboration has a small working group of about 20-25 physicists and students who are working on Lead - Lead collisions at LHC using full capability of ATLAS detector. The group was behind a recently published discovery paper on an observation of the di-jet asymmetry in Heavy Ion Collisions and several other results which are now changing the landscape of the HI physics.
