On Saturday, June 30th 2012, the institute will open its doors again between 10 am and 4 pm – a peek behind the scenes will show daily work and research done here.
This year's Open Day refers to research done at the institute that is centered on the smallest constituents of matter, elementary particles. At the large particle accellerators, these are transferred into states as might have prevailed shortly after the Big Bang - a great challenge, in experiment as well as in theory. On the other hand astroparticle physicists at the institute do research on particles that have travelled about 6000 light years to reach us. On the open day, visitors can get their own impression of the research that is necessary to understand the foundations of our universe.
There will be:
An exhibition on the institute's work in particle and astroparticle physics
Exciting popular scientific talks by scientists from the institute on topics from particle and astroparticle physics
Guided tours of laboratories and workshops
Possibilities for personal dialogue with scientists, engineers and technicians
Demonstrations in technical laboratories and apprenticeship workshops
Videos on particle and astroparticle physics
Glimpses into theoretical physics, from string theory to supersymmetry
Infos on physics studies in Munich
