Welcome to the Moore Group at Yale University

Our group is developing new technologies aimed at answering some of the major outstanding questions in nuclear and particle physics:

  • What are the fundamental properties of neutrinos?  What causes the preference for matter over antimatter in the universe? Are there yet unobserved sterile neutrinos?
  • What is the nature of dark matter?
  • Are there new fundamental interactions or deviations from gravity that can be observed at microscopic distances?

Answering these questions requires applying cutting-edge techniques from particle, nuclear, atomic, and optical physics in experiments aimed at understanding the basic building blocks of the universe.  See the Research page for more details on these experiments.

We are members of Wright Lab and the Yale Quantum Institute in the Department of Physics at Yale University
