The IKP-2 Neutrino Group was established by the recruitment of Livia Ludhova as the head of the group in November 2015. Thanks to the funds from the recruitment initiative of Helmholtz Association, the group has significantly increased in size. Currently, the group has two postdoctoral researchers and seven doctoral students.

The CSC program provides opportunities for chinese graduate students and researchers to study in some of the best organisations all over the world, more information on In our group, a postdoctoral researcher and a PhD student, Yaping and Yuhang, have won a scholarship through the CSC exchange program, allowing them to work at IKP.

Latest news

  • After the COVID-forced break , part of the group joined the JUNO collaboration meeting in Kaiping in person. Meeting our colleagues boosted our work and visiting the underground laboratory was an exciting experience!
  • News in Solar neutrino physics!
    Latest Borexino paper has been published by Physical Review Letters (Improved measurement of solar neutrinos from the Carbon-Nitrogen-Oxygen cycle by Borexino and its implications for the Standard Solar Model). It has been selected as Editors' suggestion and marked as “American Physical Society Viewpoint” (available at “Physics”). Congratulations to the Borexino Collaboration.

  • Video about the construction of the JUNO experiment made entirely by the collaboration members.

  • Borexino Collaboration has released a new paper about improved measurement of solar neutrino from CNO cycle and its implications for the Standard Solar Model. If you are interested, you can find it here.

  • The European Physical Society has decided to award the 2021 Giuseppe and Vanna Cocconi Prize to the Borexino Collaboration for their ground-breaking observation of solar neutrinos from the pp chain and CNO cycle that provided unique and comprehensive tests of the Sun as a nuclear fusion engine (link, FzJ press release, RWTH press release).
  • The main interest of the group is in the low-energy neutrino physics based on liquid scintillator detection techniques.
