Historically, precise atomic spectroscopy has led to new physics in many instances. Precision low-energy experiments may thus supplement high-energy and astrophysical approaches. It has been proposed to measure the isotope shifts (ISs) in ions to probe new physics using King plots [1], a two-dimensional graph that maps the measured ISs [2]. The Standard Model (SM) predicts in the leading order that the points in King plots should lie on a straight line. Departure from such linearity is unambiguously observed in our recent experiments with narrow optical transitions in trapped ions [3]. However, the contribution of higher-order corrections to the non-linearity within the SM complicates the test. The sources of the observed violation should be examined carefully to decouple the SM corrections arising from nuclear physics from possible new-physics contributions.

Here I will present our latest experimental and theoretical efforts to observe the non-linearity, identify its physical origin, and obtain the bound on dark boson-mediated interaction as a particular type of new physics that is of increasing interest. Future works will be discussed subsequently.
