Laser Cooling and Atomic Physics

LCAP image Our ability to understand and to manipulate nature depends on the precision of our measurements. Experiments in laser cooling and atomic physics will provide unprecedented accuracy, setting new world standards for use in testing physical theories and in computing, navigation, and communications here on Earth. Cooling atoms with lasers away from the Earth's gravity will also give scientists better opportunities to measure fundamental atomic forces and symmetries that may well hold clues to how things work at macroscopic levels as well.
