The scientific aim of talk will be presentation of the results of investigation the structure of selected elements: chromium, manganese and thorium, in terms of their applications in optical atomic and nuclear clocks. Research work was carried out at the Poznań University of Technology and at PTB Braunschweig, Germany.

One of the tasks was to obtain a possibly complete description of the electronic energy structure of the atoms of selected elements with an open 3d shell – chromium and manganese, which could form the basis of an effective search for electronic level systems with specific properties necessary for applications in quantum engineering and metrology, in particular for optical atomic clocks. The remaining part of the presentation will include the works related to the pioneering optical nuclear clock project, based on the transition between the ground and the excited (isomer) state transition in 229 thorium nucleus, which was developed in cooperation with the Prof. E. Peik’s research group from PTB (Germany), leading in this field.

Chairman: Prof. Sławomir Breiter
