Photo XENON collaboration

Excess Events observed in Dark Matter Experiment

Scientists from the international XENON collaboration announced today that data from their XENON1T, the world's most sensitive dark matter experiment, show a surprising excess of events.

KAW grants awarded to three projects in which researchers from Fysikum are involved

The Knut and Alice Wallenberg fundation has announced 20 ground-breaking research projects to receive grants for a total of 640 million SEK. Among them three projects include several researchers at the Department of Physics as co-investigator.

The extreme of rarity

OKC researchers helped reveal the rarest nuclear reaction now known to mankind. To observe this ultra-rare process, XENON1T watched a tonne of ultra-pure liquid xenon for a year. The experiment was featured on the cover of the scientific journal 'Nature'

The world's largest dark matter detector, XENON1T, reaches a new level of sensitivity

The international collaboration, XENON, which includes members of Stockholm University has built the world's most sensitive detector for dark matter. After one year of data collection, the experiment has reached a greater sensitivity than ever before.

The Zwicky Transient Facility sees “first light”: a new era in the study of the dynamic sky

The Zwicky Transient Facility is now ready to start operations. A new robotic camera with the ability to capture hundreds of thousands of galaxies in a single shot has taken its first image of the sky. The recently installed camera is part of a new automated sky-survey project based at the Palomar Observatory in California and a revolutionising tool for the study of rapidly varying cosmic phenomena
