Leader: Prof. Dr. Randolf Pohl
Dr. Randolf Pohl started setting up his ERC-funded Muonic Atoms group at the end of 2011.
The research is dedicated to laser spectroscopy of atoms and ions in which one of the shell electrons is replaced by a 200 times heavier muon. The experiments are being carried out at the Paul-Scherrer-Institut (PSI) in Villigen (Switzerland) which offers the world's strongest muon beams.
In 2016, Dr. Pohl accepted a W2 professorship at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz.
