LTP: Laboratory for Particle Physics
Scientific Highlights and News
Anna Sótér has started an Ambizione fellowship at ETH Zurich and PSI. Her project is dedicated to developing a novel source of cold muonium atoms, which will be used for a new interferometry experiment that enables testing the weak equivalence principle by directly probing gravitational interaction of antimatter.
The designers of the new Swiss banknote series together with the scientific advisor Günther Dissertori from ETHZ gave a fascinating PSI-colloquium on the 200 Swiss Frank banknote.
The 5th Workshop on the Physics of Fundamental Symmetries and Interactions (PSI2019) took place from 20 to 25 October 2019 at PSI, bringing together 200 scientists from all over the world working on some of today’s most precise particle-physics experiments at the low-energy frontier.
Max Zoller has been awarded a Swiss National Science Foundation
Ambizione grant with PSI as host institution.
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the strongest explosions in the Universe since the Big Bang. They are believed to be produced either in the formation of black holes at the end of massive star evolution or the merging of compact objects.
