Dear colleagues

The low-energy isomeric state in thorium-229 offers unique and multifaceted opportunities in physics and neighboring fields of research. Recently, interest in the isomer has experienced a major boost as reflected by the number of teams involved, the number and quality of publications as well as proposed future plans. We therefore came to the conclusion to bring together key researches and young scientists in a workshop “Nuclear Frequency Standard: State of the Art” in the beginning of May 2017 to be held by National Research Nuclear University MEPhI.

Topics to be discussed at the workshop:

  • Atomic and nuclear physics of thorium-229
  • Frequency metrology
  • Evolution of fundamental constants
  • Nuclear gamma-ray laser
  • Low-energy isomers

Dates

Workshop, to be held at the last week of May 2017 (29.05.2017 - 03.06.2017).

Exact date will be announced later.
