Current Projects

Our group is specialised in high energy particle physics. Among other things the group is engaged in experimental research on the fundamental interactions and constituents of matter. Another focus lies on research and development of new detectors for particle physics experiments with special interest in semiconductor pixel detectors. Moreover, the applications of such sensors for X-ray photon detection for medical imaging and material science are investigated.

High Energy Particle Physics

nullATLAS Physics

ATLAS is one of the four large detectors at the proton-proton collider LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at the Centre of European Particle Physics CERN (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire).

Detector Physics (Pixel Detectors)

atlasbig_cropHybrid Pixels

Most of the work in hybrid pixels is dedicated to the ATLAS pixel detectors and its upgrades. The innermost tracking detector of ATLAS is a semiconductor pixel detector in hybrid technology where the detector consists of two chips - a readout and a sensor chip - bump-bonded together.
