In this talk, I will describe the instrumentation, experimental techniques and results obtained in measurements of transition probabilities (B(E2)-values), electric and magnetic moments (Q-values and g-factors, respectively) of nuclei in regions around 132Sn and 78Ni, using inverse kinematics reactions with radioactive ion beams.

Search for New Physics with the pi -> e nu decay: First results from the TRIUMF PIENU Experiment

Speaker: 
Luca Doria (TRIUMF)
Event Date and Time: 
Wed, 2015-06-03 14:00 - 15:00
Location: 
TRIUMF Auditorium

Precision measurements and searches for rare particle decays play a major role in the search for physics beyond the Standard Model. The TRIUMF PIENU experiment aims for a high precision measurement of the pi -> e nu branching ratio to test the Standard Model hypothesis of electron-muon universality and to search for evidence of new physics at the 1000 TeV mass scale. First results from PIENU on the branching ratio and the search for massive neutrino couplings to electrons will be presented.

Speaker: 
Gerald Gwinner (U Manitoba)

Location:

I will present concluding results from a series of Ives-Stilwell-type experiments at the TSR and ESR heavy ion storage rings. Using collinear laser spectroscopy on Li+ ions stored at speeds ranging from 0.03 to 0.34 c, and achieving absolute frequency accuracies at the 10^(-10) level, we have verified the relationship between the velocity beta and the time dilation factor gamma to within ± 2.3 x 10^(-9). This puts limits on Lorentz-violating test theories.
