We are member of the ATLAS Collaboration at CERN since the beginning of the group in Mainz in 2012, where we took over responsibilities in the muon system of the ATLAS detector. We have been constructing drift-panels for the ATLAS New Small Wheel projects, design the new muon trigger system for the High Luminosity Phase of the LHC as well as coordinate the data-quality efforts of the full ATLAS muon system. Further information on the experiment can be found here.
The FASER experiment at CERN aims at the search for weakly interacting particles that are produced in proton-proton collisions at the LHC. As founding members of the FASER Collaboration, we took over responsibilities in the calorimeter calibration system, the tracker commissioning, the support frame construction as well as the low-level readout systems. With our ERC grant on the search for axion-like particles, we are also involved in the development and the financing of the preshower upgrade of the FASER experiment. Further information on the experiment can be found here.
As founding members of the BabyIAXO Experiment, we took over the responsibility to develop and construct an active muon veto system with tracking and particle identification capabilities. BabyIAXO aims for the search for axion-like particles, that are presumably produced in the sun. Further information on the experiment can be found here.
Light-through-wall experiments use high-power lasers and a strong magnetic field, in which the laser photon could convert to axions. The photons of the lasers get stopped by a wall, while the axion pass through the wall and might convert in the magnetic field after the wall back to photons, which can be detected. This is the experimental concept of experiments like OSQAR, where we have been involved until its completion in 2016, and now at the ALPS-2 Experiment. Here, we took over responsibilities in the development of the transition edge sensor for photon detection as well as its integration in the final experimental setup. Further information on the experiment can be found here.
The search for the electromagnetic dipole moment of the muon offers a unique portal to the search for new physics. A new experiment at the Paul Scherrer Institute using a frozen spin technique, will allow to probe the EDM to an unprecedented precision. We took over responsibilities in the construction of a muon tagger system using either a Micromegas TPC-based approach or straw-tube detectors.
