PhD thesis within BASE at CERN

The Baryon Antibaryon Symmetry Experiment BASE external Link is a high precision Penning trap experiment at the Antiproton Decelerator of CERN, Geneva. It is dedicated to measure the magnetic moment of the antiproton to a resolution of at least one part in a billion. This will provide one of the most stringent tests of CPT invariance.
The operation of a cryogenic Penning trap experiment involves a broad range of multiple experimental techniques which are related to the design of high-precision multi-Penning trap systems, ultra low-noise electronics engineering, software development as well as mechanical engineering. Several advanced ion trap techniques have been developed in BASE, as the observation of individual (anti)proton spin quantum jumps, the application of the double Penning trap technique with a single proton, as well as the most precise measurement of the proton magnetic moment. All required techniques are combined to investgate the fundamental laws of physics, by experiments with antimatter at lowest energies and with greatest precision.

The candidate will be affiliated to the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physic at Heidelberg, and will reveice its PhD title from the University of Heidelberg, Germany.
