The Chair EVb

Gruppenbild der Arbeitsgruppe im Jahr 2019

Here we are: The Chair of Experimental Physics Vb, or EVb for short.

Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Dr. Rhode, our research and teaching focuses the field of astroparticle physics. Our work covers manydifferent subfields of astroparticle physics; from ghostly neutrinos, very-high-energy photons, radio astronomy to simulation and theory work, there is something for everyone!

We combine the exciting challenges of astrophysics, particle physics and data science. In close collaboration with colleagues from other disciplines, we develop modern methods of data processing, analysis and machine learning and apply them to data across the electromagnetic spectrum and in the neutrino regime. We participate in large international collaborations and take leading roles in CTA, MAGIC, FACT and IceCube.

Whether you are a bachelor's student, a master's student, a PhD student or a post-doc, everyone is part of the working group. In  joint meetings, we exchange information about our individual work and can learn from each other. Even outside the regular meetings, there is always someone who can offer help with questions.


Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.

One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.
