Team Exotic Quantum Systems
One of the main research directions of the team is the theoretical study of exotic atomic systems, in particularly muonic atoms. They feature strong dependence on nuclear parameters and therefore can provide information about atomic nuclei. Since muonic atoms can be treated as hydrogen-like highly charged ions, a well-known theoretical QED methods are applicable here, however with the much higher impact of the nuclear physics. A combination of the knowledge about the level structure and experiments measuring the transition energies in muonic atoms enabled the determination of nuclear parameters like charge radii, electric quadrupole and magnetic dipole moments. The team collaborates with few experimental groups around the world.
Additionally, we performs numerical and analytical many-body calculations for atoms and ions, research towards the determination and search for variation of fundamental constants, and other high-precision calculations for highly charged ions.
