Main energy field:

Our group work with exotic atoms, bound coulombic systems in which one or more of the constituents is an exotic particle – a muon, antiproton, etc.

Recently, we have become interested in Muon-catalyzed fusion. A process where muons induce nuclear fusion at room temperature in an exotic hydrogen-like molecule.
