We have published a detailed description of an experiment we are conducting which will search for axion in yet-to-be explored parameter space. Best case scenario – we will find an axion. Otherwise we will set useful limits on axion’s mass and coupling strength. https://arxiv.org/abs/1707.05312
We propose a new method to measure parity non-conservation in molecules and conduct proof-of-principle experiment. link: https://arxiv.org/abs/1707.01759
A miniaturized cavity-enhanced room-temperature magnetic-field sensor based on nitrogen-vacancy centers was demonstrated by our group. The sensitivity and small size of the detector make it an ideal candidate for endoscopic magnetic field measurements aiming at biomedical applications. In contrast to most NV-based magnetometers the magnetic signal is extracted by observing infrared absorption of the NV […]
Prof. Dmitry Budker was awarded the following grants: A European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant of EUR 2.5 million to search for dark matter and dark energy. The funded project is entitled “Experimental Searches for Oscillating and Transient Effects from the Dark Sector”. Read the press release here. An EU-funded grant for the HORIZON 2020 […]
The Cosmic Axion Spin Precession Experiment (CASPEr), deserved a prize for being a breakthrough in physics.
