Searches for new physics often benefit from improved technologies. Here we discuss possible applications of two emerging technologies to searches for physics beyond the Standard Model. First, laser frequency combs enable broad spectral coverage and coherent conversion between optical and RF signals. We are investigating tests of the nonminimal Standard-Model Extension using frequency combs coupled to broadband optical cavities. Second, nitrogen vacancy centers in diamond enable precision nanoscale magnetometry with applications from imaging to quantum science. We are investigating their use in searches for short-range spin-spin couplings.
