tSPECT: Determination of the free neutron lifetime

Information about the tSPECT experiment at JGU's source for ultracold neutrons and a detailed description of the experiment can be found here.

Muon g-2: Measurement of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon

The details about the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Batavia, IL, USA, can be found on the collaboration's webpage. Prof. Fertl is involved in the high-precision measurement of the magnetic field in the gap of the muon storage ring.

Project 8: Cyclotron radiation emission spectroscopy of single electrons

The Project 8 collaboration has demonstrated cyclotron radiation emission spectroscopy (CRES) with single electrons as a new key technology in the field of precision nuclear beta decay spectroscopy. The experiment, located at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA, combines aspects of high-precision magnetic field design and measurement with techniques for ultra-high and ultra-pure vacuum spaces, microwave detection technology, cryogenic design, and cutting edge data acquisition and processing techniques.
