Here is a short paper on precision physcis experiments at low energies. Such experiments use methods of nuclear, particle and atomic physics providing some of the most sensitive tests of our present best theories of nature. Hoping that this is most accessible, I have chosen an illustrative approach, giving 6 examples of such experiments with neutrons and muons addressing various aspects of the known fundamental interactions and open issues. The list of references puts emphasis for some examples more on the historic, original publications, for others on the latest results and sometimes just refers to review articles. It is not aiming at the most comprehensive picture but at attracting the reader’s interest and providing starting points for further studies.
