For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence...

How heavy are neutrinos? The Karlsruhe tritium neutrino experiment KATRIN was designed to answer this important question of modern particle physics and cosmology. It was started after 15 years of construction at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) on 11 June 2018. The SFB1258 is involved in...

One of the fundamental questions in particle physics is still unanswered: Are neutrinos their own antiparticles? The search for an answer leads to an extremely rare nuclear decay process, the neutrinoless double-beta decay (0nbb). While paving the way for a new ton-scale experiment, the GERDA...

For the first time ever, scientists have measured the electromagnetic and gravitational signals generated by the collision of two neutron stars. In a special research project led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM), physicists with the Collaborative Research Center 1258 "Neutrinos and Dark...
