Overview Talk Fundamental Interactions Monday Morning

Description

The presentation will concentrate on recent applications with exciting results of Penning traps in atomic and nuclear physics with cooled and stored exotic ions. These are high-accuracy atomic mass measurements of short-lived radionuclides, *g*-factor determinations of the bound-electron in highly-charged, hydrogen-like ions and *g*-factor as well as mass measurements of the proton and antiproton. The experiments are dedicated to nuclear-, neutrino- and astrophysics studies in the case of mass measurements on radionuclides, and to the determination of fundamental constants and a CPT symmetry test with measurements on the proton and antiproton.
