Spectroscopy of Engineered Atoms


Experiments with atomic systems designed to have features more favorable for improved measurements of atomic properties and constants of nature.


Improved precision of spectroscopic data and constants of nature is impeded, in many cases, by the inherent difficulties in understanding and controlling the system available for measurement. Overcoming such roadblocks may require making atomic systems with favorable feature.
