Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to use modern techniques in neutron and particle physics within an experimental or theoretical project. This can include acquiring expertise in the work with Gravity Resonance Spectroscopy,Rabi or Ramsey methods, microresonators, detectors for neutrons, glass fiber optics, characterization of superconducting magnets, etc. The main goal of the project, its context in the current research field and the used methods can be adequately described (usually in the form of a report). After successful completion of the course, students are able to test gravitation with quantum objects.

Subject of course

The aim is to improve the experimental sensitivity of neutrons to gravity and to hypothetical short ranged forces using a quantum interference technique.

Teaching methods

Project thesis employing novel experimental methods.

Mode of examination

Written and oral
