EAT - Experimentelle Astroteilchenphysik und Kosmologie

As cosmologists we use astronomical techniques to probe physics at extreme temperatures (i.e. Big Bang) or extreme distances (i.e. the expansion of the Universe). The current group consists of Prof. Dr. Marek Kowalski, two researchers, three PhD students and two Master students.

EAT – The Cosmology group of the Humboldt Universität

Abb.:Marek Kowalski

We are active participants in the Supernova Factory, Zwicky Transient Facility, SCP/SeeChange and IceCube collaborations. Main projects include:

  1. Using Type Ia supernovae to better understand why the expansion of the Universe is accelerating. This distance measurement technique led to the discovery of Dark Energy.

  2. Using the Icecube neutrino detector, in combination with other astronomical observatories, to determine the source and nature of extragalactic neutrinos.


Student projects are generally available. Examples of current/recent projects are:

  1. Measure optical properties for next generation wavelength-shifting detectors for the southpole Icecube detector.

  2. Use the robotic Stella telescopes to observe and analyze nearby supernovae.

  3. Measure properties of the local supernova host galaxy.
