PhenoDay at the Bethe Center

A one-day meeting on particle phenomenology was organized by Herbi Dreiner's group in Bonn together with groups from Aachen, Heidelberg, Nijmegen and U. Amsterdam.

ERC Proof of Concept Grant for Prof. Dr. Simon Stellmer

Prof. Dr. Simon Stellmer has been awarded a Proof of Concept Grant by the European Research Council (ERC) as part of a program designed to help researchers translate their ideas from previous ERC projects into commercial applications. The grant is endowed with €150,000.

"Planetamos" on tour for the first time

From 22 - 25 March, the Physics Show of the University of Bonn made a guest appearance at the University of Tübingen.

New ATLAS result weighs in on the W boson

The W boson is the mediator particle of the electroweak force. Discovered in the 1980s at CERN, its properties remain challenging to measure within the Standard Model of particle physics. Members of the research group of Prof. Dr. Klaus Desch and Priv.-Doz. Philip Bechtle as well as of the research group of Prof. Dr. Ian Brock are involved in the latest and improved W boson mass measurement presented by ATLAS at the Moriond electroweak conference.

Collider neutrinos observed for the first time

Neutrinos are among the most abundant particles in the cosmos, but still pose many mysteries to researchers. An international team with participation of the University of Bonn has now for the first time directly observed neutrinos produced in a particle accelerator. The physicists hope that their new discovery will enable them to better understand the nature of these almost massless elementary particles. The results were presented last weekend at the 57th Moriond Conference in Italy and will soon be submitted for scientific peer review in the journal Physical Review Letters.

2nd place at Jugend Forscht for two Bonn high-school students

Prof. Desch's working group supervised two student research projects on particle physics. With their work, the two students took 2nd place in the regional round of Jugend Forscht.
