Ten Minute Talk:"Laser-cooled polyatomic molecules for electron EDM measurements" by Ben Augenbaum
Control and imaging of individually trapped ions and neutral atoms have been crucial to developing them as powerful quantum building blocks for qubits, logic gates, and clocks. Bringing these capabilities to molecules promises additional quantum applications, enabled by the rich internal degrees of freedom and inter-molecular coupling. I  will  present current experimental work at the...
