Study of physics beyond the Standard Model through beta decay of trapped nuclei. The atoms are produced by an accelerator and trapped (and if necessary polarized) in a Magneto-Optical trap with laser beams. The decay products are measured by detectors.
Study of the internal structure of the pi meson and the photon by diffractive dissociation to jets that carry information on their internal structure.
