Anlässlich des 60. Geburtstages von Professor Klaus Wendt spricht Professor Klaus Blaum zum Thema:

Measuring the World – Precision Measurements of Fundamental Properties of Atoms and Nuclei

Atomic physics techniques like Penning-trap mass spectrometry and laser spectroscopy have provided sensitive and high-precision tools for a detailed study of atomic and nuclear ground-state properties far from the valley of stability. Mass, moment and nuclear charge radii measurements in long isotopic and isotonic chains have allowed, e.g., to extract nuclear structure information such as shell and subshell closures, the onset of deformation, the coexistence of nuclear shapes and the discovery of new magic numbers. This colloquium covers the mentioned experimental techniques to study nuclear ground state properties and their impact on nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics and tests of fundamental interactions and their symmetries. Comparisons to state-of-the-art calculations will be presented as well.  ...

Scientific Programme on Fundamental Parameters from Lattice QCD
Image link

Lattice QCD inputs are becoming ever more important for phenomenology, and have greatly contributed to determining Standard Model parameters such as the quark masses and the running coupling constant, with an overall accuracy that far exceeds the intrinsic uncertainties of other methods. This has prompted several efforts to provide PDG-style global estimates of lattice results for use in phenomenology, including a careful assessment of systematic errors and the overall accuracy. The aim of this MITP scientific program is to bring together the lattice practitioners who are involved in producing global estimates with the members of the phenomenological and experimental communities who will be using lattice estimates as input for phenomenological analyses in order to test the validity of the Standard Model.  ...
