Title: Hydrogenlike Highly Charged Ions for Tests of the Time Independence of Fundamental Constants

Abstract

Hyperfine transitions in the electronic ground state of cold, trapped hydrogenlike highly charged ions have attractive features for use as frequency standards because the majority of systematic frequency shifts are smaller by orders of magnitude compared to many microwave and optical frequency standards. Frequency measurements of these transitions hold promise for significantly improved laboratory tests of local position invariance of the electron and quark masses.
