Unveiling hidden multipolar orders with magnetostriction
Professor YB Kim's group theoretically propose that magnetostriction provides a powerful and novel tool to directly detect higher-order multipolar symmetry breaking. The paper was published today in Nature Communications. more...

Stratospheric Optical Rubidium Clock Experiment
Grad students Shira Jackson and Kristen Cote successfully launched and remotely operated an atomic clock on a high altitude balloon, over the Labour Day Weekend. This atomic clock used an optical transition in rubidium atoms. more...

Unraveling the Proton Puzzle - Professor Vutha's work featured in Science Magazine
The discrepancy between the proton size deduced from the Lamb shift in muonic hydrogen and the average, textbook value based on regular (electronic) hydrogen has puzzled physicists for nearly a decade. One possible resolution could be that electrons interact with protons in a different way than muons do, which would require “new physics.” Bezginov et al. measured the Lamb shift in electronic hydrogen, which allowed for a direct comparison to the Lamb shift measured in muonic hydrogen. The two results agreed, but the discrepancy with the averaged value remains. more...
