Cold and ultracold molecules possess the potential to revolutionize physical chemistry and few-body physics, provide new techniques for probing new states of quantum matter, allow for precision measurements of both fundamental and applied interest and enable quantum simulations of condensed matter phenomena.

I will present our recent experiments to test new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics using cold beams of diatomic molecules and the techniques we develop to cool molecules to μK temperatures. Cooling molecules to such low temperatures is important to achieve full control over their external and internal degrees of freedom which is necessary to improve the precision of our measurements and will enable us to use them as novel quantum tools.
