Matt Dietrich is an experimental physicist in the medium energy group of Argonne's Physics Division. He is interested in using atom trapping and cooling techniques on rare isotopes to advance our understanding of nuclear and fundamental physics. For instance, he leads the effort at Argonne to measure the electric dipole moment (EDM) of radium. If found to be non-zero, the EDM could give us an important window into poorly understood physics, especially why the universe appears to contain only matter, and not an equal amount of anti-matter. You can read more about our experiments on the Atom Trappers' webpage.
