Research Activities

Our research area are precision experiments in particle physics at low energies in search of physics beyond the standard model. The focus lies on measurements on the weak interaction in the decay of the free neutron. Experiments are performed at the strong neutron sources Forschungs-Neutronenquelle Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II), Garching, and the Institut Laue-Langevin, Grenoble.
