Short description (please see also content page): The lecture gives insight into the modern and exciting field of precision experiments with stored and cooled particles. The basics are discussed in detail. Ground state properties of nuclei e.g. spin, charge radius, mass and lifetime are important quantities in atomic and nuclear physics. Stored particles provide an ideal atomphysical approach to the precise determination of these quantities. Thus, cooling and storage methods become more and more important.
Mandatory/advantageous previous knowledge, Target Group: This lecture is intended for both bachelor and master students.
