Welcome to the Group for Precision Physics at Low Energy

We perform precision particle physics experiments at low energies, studying fundamental symmetries and interactions with neutrons and muons. Our group is involved in several experiments such as muonic hydrogen and helium, muon cooling, muonium production and neutron electron dipole moment.

Latest News and Events

  • Members of our group participated to a symposium on the ‚University of Tokyo –ETH Zurich strategic partnership‘ which brought together delegations of both institutions on January 19-20, 2017 in Tokyo. Most of the participants have ongoing collaborations with groups of the other university. Our group’s prime partners are the groups of Prof. Toshinori Mori and Prof. Yasuhiro Sakemi. An article about the symposion can be found here.
  • Florian Piegsa from our group has been awarded with a prestigious ERC Starting Grant which will allow him to start his own research group at the University of Berne. Over the next five years, his project to search for a neutron electric dipole moment using a pulsed neutron beam will receive funding from the European Research Council.
  • Andreas Eggenberger successfully defended his PhD thesis "Development of a novel low-energy, high-brightness µ+ beam line" on 2nd of September 2016. The thesis can be found here.
