The AMS Experiment

Search for Antimatter on the International Space Station

The universe as we know it is made exclusively of matter. If we assume that the universe was created by the Big Bang, then we come to the conclusion that whatever might have existed previously must have been electrically neutral. According to the principle of charge conservation, the evolution of the universe would have led to the creation of equal amounts of matter and antimatter. However, where the antimatter went is still not clear today.

Search for electric dipole moments of charged particles in storage rings

The standard model (SM) of elementary particle physics falls short when it comes to explaining the existence of matter – today’s universe is almost exclusively composed of matter and almost no antimatter – and thus fails to explain the reason for our very existence from a physics point of view. ‘New’ physics beyond the SM is therefore required.






As part of a cooperation project between RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich (JARA), a new database was created, that provides comprehensive overview of the main research areas in energy of the two institutions.
