HIM actively participates in many national and international research initiatives, among these are


Experiments at FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research at GSI, Darmstadt)


Further collaborations

  • PRISMA (Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter), Cluster of Excellence at Mainz
  • BABAR, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, California, USA
    BABAR is a multi-year particle physics experiment designed to study some of the most fundamental questions about the universe by exploring its smallest and most basic constituents – elementary particles
  • BEIJING SPECTROMETER EXPERIMENT, BESIII, Institute of High Energy Physics, Beijing, China
  • CERN-ATRAP, CERN, Genève, Switzerland
    The Antihydrogen trap (ATRAP) is an experiment to compare hydrogen atoms with their antimatter equivalents – antihydrogen atoms.
  • CERN-ISOLDE, CERN, Genève, Switzerland
    The on-line isotope mass separator ISOLDE is a facility dedicated to the production of a large variety of radioactive ion beams for many different experiments in the fields of nuclear and atomic physics, solid-state physics, materials science and life sciences.
  • OLYMPUS, DESY, Hamburg, Germany
  • A4/SFB443, Institute for Nuclear Physics, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany
