Physikalisches Institut Heidelberg
The Physikalische Insitut has a long tradition in the experimental investigation of the structure of matter and the fundamental forces.
Currently the institute hosts four experimental groups working on Low and High Energy Particle Physics, Complex Quantum Systems and Heavy Ion Physics. They address fundamental questions testing the Standard Model of Elementary Particle Physics and beyond. The search for New Physics focuses on the matter and anti-matter asymmetry in our universe, the behavior of matter after the big bang, quantum effects of many body systems and gravitation at small scales.
