02.02.2016 Eiger-µ GT launched!

The new interdisciplinary project "Eiger-µ GT (Eiger muon glacier tomography)" has been launched recently. It is a collaboration between the Laboratory for High-Energy Physics (LHEP) and the Institute of Geological Sciences (GEO), University of Bern, aiming to "see" inside glaciers of the Swiss Alps using cosmic-ray muons. Thesse are are most abundant charged particles in cosmic rays and can penetrate several kilometers of rock. The project will rely on this high penetration power to investigate the thickness of the glacier in way similar to medical X-ray radiographies in hospitals.

The Laboratory for High Energy Physics (LHEP) is a division of the Physics Institute at the University of Bern, Switzerland.
We conduct research in the field of experimental particle physics. The five main subjects are:

The LHEP has also been involved in experiments on low energy QCD studies, strange-matter, quark-gluon plasma, etc.
