January 2021 Dr. René Reimann was awarded the GNN dissertation award (https://www.globalneutrinonetwork.org/) for his doctoral thesis titled "Search for the Sources of the Astrophysical High-Energy Muon-Neutrino Flux with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory" (RWTH Aachen, 2019). Congratulations René!
January 2021 Carl-Fabian Strid has joined our group as a graduate student on the tSPECT experiment.
Welcome to Mainz, Carl-Fabian!
October 2020 Hassan Qureshi has joined us as a graduate student to work on the Muon g-2 experiment. Welcome Hassan!
September 2020 The European Commission just approved our Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Staff Exchanges (RISE) 2020 proposal "aMUSE (advanced Muon Campus in US and Europe contribution)". We are looking forward to travel again to Fermilab in support of the muon g-2 experiment after the Covid-19 situation is under control.
July 2020: Project 8 graduate student, Christine Claessens, is featured in the PRISMA+ news series
"Woran forschen Sie gerade?". Christine is reporting about her stay abroad in Seattle and her participation with the TRIMS experiment that just publsihed its result in Physical Review Letters. Congratulations Christine!
June 2020: A new consensus value for the theoretical expectation of the muon g-2 has been released and can be found here. For more detauils about the involvement of JGU physicist in Muon g-2, please read the press release.
March 2020: We are happy to welcome Dr. René Reimann as a postdoc to our group. René is joining in to our efforts in the muon g-2 and Project 8 experiments.
February 2020: We just finished a great beam time with the τSPECT experiment at the UCN source of the JGU TRIGA reactor facility. Way to go, team!
February 2020: Our Measurement of the Permanent Electric Dipole Moment of the Neutron has been published in Physical Review Letters as an Editor's suggestion and is discussed in Physics, in Physics World and in this JGU press release. And here are some press articles about the result on spektrum.de, derstandard.de and nzz.ch.
December 2019: Muon g-2 listed by Nature as one of "The science events to watch for in 2020".
