Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics

Welcome to the Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik (MPIK, Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics) in Heidelberg, a research establishment of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (Max Planck Society). The MPIK does experimental and theoretical basic research in the fields of Astroparticle Physics (crossroads of particle physics and astrophysics) and Quantum Dynamics (dynamics of atoms and molecules).



CONUS narrows the scope for “new physics”

There are a number of reasons why the Standard Model of particle physics is not considered to be complete. One very interesting option here is the…
