linkPfeil  ATLAS
Prof. Dr. Siegfried Bethke

Physicists at the Max Planck Institute for Physics have constructed the ATLAS particle detector together with scientists from all over the world. ATLAS is an experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a particle ...

linkPfeil  AWAKE
Dr. Patric Muggli

The research group AWAKE is working at the MPI for Physics with the goal to develop plasma-based advanced particle accelerators.
With this new acceleration technique the scientists generate a “charged wave” in a plasma. This ...

linkPfeil  Belle
Dr. Hans-Günther Moser
Prof. Dr. Christian Kiesling

In the SuperBelle Experiment (continuing the present Belle-Experiments at KEK, Japan) CP violation (matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe) will be investigated.

linkPfeil  CAST
Dr. Rainer Kotthaus

The CAST experiment, installed at CERN, searches for axions being emitted by the Sun. The axion, a hypothetical particle which was originally proposed in order to solve the so-called CP-puzzle of strong interactions, is among the ...

linkPfeil  CRESST
Dr. Franz Proebst

With the CRESST Experiment, physicists from around Europe are searching for a new form of matter, the Dark Matter. This is believed to be the missing matter of the universe. To search for this matter, novel detection methods ...

linkPfeil  CTA
Recent discoveries have revealed a Universe rich in objects producing the very highest energy radiation. To try and understand how these immense particle accelerators work, over 800 scientists and engineers from around the world are working together to ...   [more]

linkPfeil  GeDet – Germanium Detector Development
Dr. Iris Abt

The research group GeDet deals with the development of germanium detectors that need to be shielded extremely against external radiation for their use in experiments. Germanium is a semiconductor which can be used as a detector ...

linkPfeil  GERDA
Prof. Dr. Allen Caldwell
Dr. Iris Abt
Dr. Béla Majorovits

GERDA, a GERmanium Detector Array to Unravel the Nature of the Neutrino Neutrinos play a fundamental role in our understanding of matter and the universe. They were postulated as ...

linkPfeil  H1: Electron-Proton Collisions
Prof. Dr. Allen Caldwell
Prof. Dr. Christian Kiesling

The H1 detector is installed at the HERA accelerator at DESY. The main research interest of the H1 collaboration is to measure the structure of the proton, to study the fundamental ...
  [more]

linkPfeil  JADE
Prof. Dr. Siegfried Bethke

The JADE experiment was one of the experiments located at the PETRA e+e- collider and storage ring at DESY in Hamburg, Germany. The experiment took data between 1979 and 1986 in the electron-positron center-of-mass energy ...

linkPfeil  Linear Collider (ILC & CLIC)
Dr. Frank Simon

A Linear Collider is planned as the next big facility at the energy frontier of particle physics. Instead of protons, it will collide electrons and their anti particles, the positrons at highest energies.
  [more]

linkPfeil  MAGIC
Prof Dr. Masahiro Teshima

The two MAGIC telescopes, with a mirror surface of 236m² (MAGIC-I) and 247m² (MAGIC-II), are the world-wide largest Cherenkov telescopes in operation. Thez are located at 2200m altitude on La Palma, one of the Canary ...

linkPfeil  Muon Cooling
Prof. Dr. Allen Caldwell

Muon beam cooling is crucial for the feasibility of a muon collider. The nominal cooling scheme for colliders is based on ionization cooling, and for muons this is done at the energy range of 200 MeV. It is important to keep ...
  [more]

linkPfeil  STAR
Peter Seyboth

In high energy proton-proton collisions, the hard scattering of quarks and gluons early in the collision leads to the production of jets, narrow streams of fast-moving particles that allow physicists to detect and understand the ...
  [more]

linkPfeil  ZEUS
Prof. Dr. Allen Caldwell
Dr. Iris Abt

ZEUS is the second large multi-purpose detector at DESY's HERA accelerator. Like for H1, the research at ZEUS focuses on investigating the structure of the proton, on studying the fundamental interactions ...
