Trapped ions are excellent systems for optical frequency metrology, as they can be well isolated from the external environment. Using laser-cooling, ion temperatures below the millikelvin level can be reached, thereby greatly suppressing the relativistic time dilation associated with the thermal...

Atomic clocks operate at extraordinary levels of precision and accuracy, and can be used for searches for new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics (SM) by searching for miniscule deviations in their operating frequencies. For example, a hypothetical fifth force between the neutrons...
