We compute bounds on screened scalar field theories from hydrogen-like systems. New light scalar fields generically have a direct coupling to matter. Such a coupling is strongly constrained by myriad experimental measurements. However, certain theories possess a screening mechanism that allows the effects of this coupling to weaken dynamically, and to evade many such bounds. We compute the perturbations to the energy levels of hydrogen-like systems due to screened scalar fields. We then use this…

Muon g-2

The muon g-2 collaboration has measured the anomalous magnetic g value of the positive muon to within a relative uncertainty of 0.7 parts per million. The result, a_{\mu^+} = 11 659 204(7)(5) x
