Talk with Ms. Klimchitskaya on January 28th

Topic: Constraints on hypothetical interactions from measuring the Casimir force

Galina L. Klimchitskaya from the Peter the Great Saint Petersburg Polytechnic University will discuss the constraints on the Yukawa-type corrections to Newton's gravitational law and on the coupling constants of axion-like particles to nucleons following from recently performed experiments of Casimir physics. It is shown that the most precise measurements of the Casimir force lead to the strongest laboratory constraints on the Yukawa interaction for shorter than a few micrometers interaction range and on the axion-to-nucleon coupling in the interval of axion masses from 1 meV to a few eV. These constraints are compared with the other laboratory limits. Possible improvements due to minor modifications in the experimental setups are considered.

The talk will take place on the 28th of January, 15:00 at the Hörsaal of the Atominstitut at Stadionallee 2, 1020 Wien. The invitation with all the details and a description of the topic can be found here
