Fr atom can be successively used to search for the atomic permanent electric dipole moment (EDM) [Hyperfine Interactions 236, 53 (2015); Journal of Physics: Conference Series 691, 012017 (2016)]. It can be induced by the permanent electron EDM predicted by modern extensions of the standard model to be nonzero at the level accessible by the new generation of EDM experiments. We consider another mechanism of the atomic EDM generation in Fr. This is caused by the scalar-pseudoscalar nucleus…

P , T -Violating and Magnetic Hyperfine Interactions in Atomic Thallium

A significant reduction of the theoretical uncertainties for ${\cal{P,T}}$-odd interaction constants but not to stronger constraints on the electron electric dipole moment, $d_e$, or the nucleon-electron scalar-pseudoscalar coupling constant, $C_S$.

The combined all-electron and two-step approach is applied to calculate the molecular parameters which are required to interpret the ongoing experiment to search for the effects of manifestation of the T,P-odd fundamental interactions in the HfF+ cation and the effective electric field is found to be 22.5 GV/cm.

Systematic study and uncertainty evaluation of P, T-odd molecular enhancement factors in BaF.

The finite field relativistic coupled cluster approach is used to calculate the Wd and Ws parameters in the ground state of the BaF molecule, providing a reliable theoretical uncertainty estimate based on investigations of the basis set, electron correlation, relatvistic effects, and geometry.
