Search for electric dipole moments using storage rings (srEDM)

Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2021,

One of the great mysteries in the natural sciences is the dominance of matter over antimatter in the universe. According to our present understanding, the early universe contained the same amount of matter and antimatter. If the universe had behaved symmetrically as it developed, every particle would have been annihilated by one of its antiparticles. We therefore owe our very existence to mechanis ...

Combustion is an extremely important field for our society. The development of new, step-change technologies is essential and greatly benefits from computational design. However, turbulent combustion physics are complex, highly non-linear, of multi-scale and multi-physics nature, and involve interactions at many time-scales. This makes modeling quite challenging such that accurate predictive model ...

Europe has somewhere between 150,000 and 500,000 landfill sites, with an estimated 90% of them being “non-sanitary” landfills, predating the EU Landfill Directive of 1999. These older landfills tend to be filled with municipal solid waste and often lack any environmental protection technology. In order to avoid future environmental and health problems, many of these landfills will soon require exp ...
