Atomic Physics at the Gamma Factory at CERN
Prof. Dr. Andrey Surzhykov (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt Braunschweig)

The Gamma Factory (GF) is a novel research tool, currently considered by CERN as part of its Physics Beyond Colliders initiative. While the main goal of the GF is the generation of high-intensity beams of gamma rays, it will also open up many opportunities in atomic, nuclear and particle physics. In my presentation, I will focus especially on the planned atomic physics activities. In particular, we will discuss how the GF can enable a wide range of ground-breaking studies, from the high-precision spectroscopy of partially stripped ions to testing Special Relativity and fundamental symmetries of Nature.

Joint seminar with the MITP workshop on Physics Opportunities with the Gamma Factory:
