The Institute for Nuclear Physics at a Glance

Research of the Institute for Nuclear Physics addresses fundamental puzzles of nature at the frontiers of science, where cosmology, astrophysics, and elementary particle physics meet. Our projects are embedded in the programme Matter and the Universe, part of the HGF Association’s research field Matter. In large international experiments we examine the nature and origin of cosmic rays, properties of neutrinos, and the composition of dark matter.


The Institute for Nuclear Physics is engaged in fundamental research in the fields of particle- and astroparticlephysics in cooperation with international research institutions. Current projects are the Pierre Auger Observatory for ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays, the IceCube experiment at the South Pole, the air shower simulation CORSIKA, the neutrino mass experiment KATRIN, and also direct dark matter search experiments with xenon and germanium detectors. Since 2015 there is also a group on the subject of astroparticle theory.
