The theoretical and experimental study of the structure and properties of matter, the fundamental symmetries and interactions by nuclear and particle physics methods are the central topics addressed in this research area. The experimental research in the field of particle physics is conducted in collaboration with the Institute of High Energy Physics (HEPHY) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

Experimental Particle Physics

The  main focus lies on the participation in large experiments at CERN - Europe's largest particle physics laboratory and at KEK, the national high energy research center in Japan. Moreover the Institute of High Energy Physics (HEPHY) participates in the design of the ILD experiment at the International Linear Collider (ILC).

Fundamental Interactions

In the domain of nuclear physics the study of the strongly interacting particles, the hadrons, is of main interst. The internal structure of the hadrons, which are built up of quarks, is described by quantum chromodynamics (QCD). Members of the group are working in one of the most active branches of this theory, Lattice QCD.

Nuclear Physics and Nuclear Astrophysics

Theoretical description of scattering and reaction processes and the interpretation of scattering observables in terms of underlying structures and interactions with special reference to nuclear and neutron-physical aspects in basic and applied physics.
