The group does research in nuclear, particle and astroparticle physics. The main projects are the KATRIN experiment at KIT to determine the neutrino mass and the search for dark matter with the XENON experiment at the LNGS underground laboratory. Further projects take place within the SPARC-Collaboration at GSI/FAIR : Detector development for the SpecTrap experiment and for laser spectroscopy experiments at the storage rings ESR and CRYRING.
