Welcome to the website of the group of Prof. Dr. C. Weinheimer

The research group works in the field of nuclear, particle and astroparticle physics. The two main projects of the working group are the neutrino mass experiment KATRIN at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the search for dark matter with the XENONnT experiment at the Italian underground laboratory LNGS and its successor DARWIN.
We also apply our detector, high-voltage and extreme purity technologies to various projects with highly charged ions in the SPARC collaboration at GSI/FAIR, and to the development of a novel detector for medical imaging in the BOLD-PET project. More information about our fields of work can be found under the following links:
