Open master/bachelor thesis projects:

For Project 8:

Title: Electron trap design for Project 8
Goals: Simulation and design of an electron trap for cyclotron radiation emission spectroscopy.
This project aims at optimizing the magnetic bottle shape and volume in order to control
the motionally induced frequency side bands of a CRES signal. This shall allow to
improve the number of detectable elctrons in the magnetic bottle observed by a
phased antenna array CRES detector.
Prerequisites: Curiosity, solid interest in particle tracking simulation, basic knowledge of Python and/or C++

Title: Electron trap design verification for Project 8
Goals: A precison characterization of the magnetic field generated by different coil geometries that can
be applied as an electron trap in the Porject 8 experiment. This includes the production of precision
coils, working with Hall Probe sensors, 3D-motion-controlled tables, precission power supplies,...
Prerequisites: Curiosity, solid interest mechanical and electronics projects relating to precision magnetic fields

Title: Magnetic field mapper
Goals:
Inside the cryogenic environment (~ 4K )of the Project 8 experiment the precision magnetic field needs to be mapped with part-per-million resolution in the radiactive decay volume. We want to perform a study of the best combination of magnetometry and positioning technology to allow for such an in-situ measurement of the 3D magnetic field map.
Prerequisites: Curiosity, solid interest mechanical and electronics projects relating to precision magnetic fields

You don't know yet if experimental physics is your passion? You want to work with us a a HiWi! We always have small technical projects that directly relate to our larger experimental setups. Maybe you want to check out this presentation for a quick overview of the experiments.
