At the Kernfysisch Versneller Instituut (KVI) a new facility (TRImuP) is under development. It aims for producing a spectrum of radioactive isotopes in direct, inverse kinematics fusion and evaporation or fragmentation reactions with heavy ion beams from the superconducting cyclotron AGOR. The products will be slowed down and trapped for accurate measurements of fundamental symmetries and interactions in physics. The scientific focus of the local KVI research groups includes precision studies of nuclear beta-decays through beta-neutrino (recoil nucleus) momentum correlations in weak decays and searches for permanent electric dipole moments in heavy atomic systems. This research programme offers a large potential for discovering new physics or to limit parameters in models beyond standard theory significantly. The scientific approach chosen in TRImuP can be regarded as complementary to such high energy physics. The TRImuP facility in Groningen will be open for users worldwide.
