In Japan, research activities by junior and senior high school students show an upward trend. However, there are limited examples of research activities in the field of elementary particles and atoms. This is due to the difficulty associated with procuring research tools such as accelerators or particle detectors. Therefore, we hosted the ‘Accel Kitchen’ in 2018 and 2019 at the Cyclotron and Radioisotope Center (CYRIC) in Tohoku University where junior and senior high school students could…

Testing the validity of the Lorentz factor

This paper details the proposed experiment (Proposal from Relatively Special and Video) which aimed to test the validity of the Lorentz factor with two methods: the time of flight (TOF) of various particles and the decay rate of pions at different momenta.

Development of a Magneto-Optical Trap System of Francium Atoms for the Electron Electric-Dipole-Moment Search

The finite value of an electron electric dipole moment (eEDM) provides the direct evidence for the violation of time reversal symmetry. Fr atoms, whose enhancement factor is 895, trapped by laser

Magneto-optical trapping of radioactive atoms for test of the fundamental symmetries

We are planning test experiments of fundamental symmetries based on the intrinsic properties of francium. It is expected that the laser cooling and trapping of francium will produce precision

Building and testing a high school calorimeter at CERN

We have designed, built and tested a crystal calorimeter in the context of CERN’s first beam line for schools competition. The results of the tests at CERN show that the light output of our
