The Institute

The Chair of Experimental Physics I – Experimental Hadron Physics -is located at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy↗️ at the Ruhr-University Bochum↗️.

Hadron physics is the part of elementary particle physics that deals with particles composed of quarks and gluons. Hadrons also include protons and neutrons, the building blocks of the atomic nucleus. Hadrons are produced at large particle accelerators in collisions of high-energy particles. The generated particles are detected by highly complex detectors and their structure and interactions are investigated.

The Chair of Experimental Hadron Physics (Prof. Wiedner) mainly deals with the setup of detectors for the PANDA experiment and data acquisition and analysis at the BESIII experiment.
