Offered Bachelor’s or Master’s Theses Topics

Forschung zur Protonenstruktur
The student will perform tests of a new analysis package for the analysis of proton structure. The first task will be to familiarize yourself with how the densities of quarks, antiquarks and gluons are described in protons. Then, simulated data will be generated based on known input densities, and the analysis package will be used to extract densities. These will then be compared to the input to see how well the reconstruction can be performed. The software analysis package is written in the modern language Julia. It is a high-level language and easy to learn.

  • Bachelor’s Thesis Physics
Supervisor: Allen C. Caldwell
Modern Computing Algorithms for Physics

The MPI offers a bachelor thesis in the field of modern computing,
either connected with the BAT, Bayesian Analysis Tool, or the
SSD, Solid State Detectors, open source program packages.
Both packages are written in the innovative language JULIA.
In either case a contribution to the package is expected as a
well as a small application.

Test of Gemanium Detectors
The MPI offers a bachelor thesis in the field of germanium detector technology. The MPI operates a number of test stands. The successful candidate will conduct some measurements with novel germanium detectors and perform a first analysis with respect to detector R&D.
