Description:

We will describe in this talk our recent results on optical trapping and Λ-enhanced laser cooling and imaging of CaF molecules [44], the laser cooling of SrOH molecules [46], and the prospects for laser cooling of larger polyatomic molecules [36], such as CaOCH3, YbOCH3, CaCCCa, SrOCF2CF2OCa, and CaO(CH2)nOR, where R is a radical termination ligand. We also will present recent progress in the field of electron electric dipole moment searches using heavy diatomic molecules, in particular the recent ACME result [45], and future prospects, including the use of polyatomic molecules [28].
