Radioactive Molecules for Nuclear Science
Prof. Ronald Fernando Garcia Ruiz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA/USA)

Molecules containing heavy and octupole deformed radioactive nuclei are predicted to provide enhanced sensitivity to investigate distinct nuclear phenomena, to test the violation of fundamental symmetries, and to search for new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. However, experimental measurements of such radioactive systems are scarce, and their study requires to overcome major experimental challenges. This seminar will discuss recent spectroscopy measurements of short-lived radium fluoride molecules (RaF) alongside future perspectives in the study of these and other radioactive molecules.
