Institute of Experimental Particle Physics (ETP)

Research at the ETP

As the name suggests, the Institute of Experimental Particle Physics (ETP) is concerned with basic research in the fields of particle and astropartiale physics. We investigate the fundamental puzzles of nature on the largest and the smallest length scales.

The research at ETP is motivated by questions like: "What is matter made out of on the fundamental level?" and "What are the fundamental forces of nature?"

To pursuit these questions we investigate the properties of the most fundamental particles known today. We operate several experiments, mostly in collaboration with many other institutes from all parts of the world. The closest collaboration happens within experimental and theoretical groups at the KIT Center Particle and Astroparticle Physics (KCETA).

Currently the main research topics at ETP are:
