In our research group, we perform low-energy particle physics at the precision frontier. To experimentally measure properties of well-known particles to the highest precision and to compare the results to the predictions of the Standard Model of Physics provides a stringent test of the model's foundations.
In our group we investigate muons, neutrons and neutrinos. A common technical anchor point of our experiments are very precisely designed and measured magnetic and electric field environments. These allow us to confine the (precursor) particles of interest in our experiments long enough to perform high precision measurements of their lifetime, (anomalous) magnetic or electric dipole moments or their masses.
