Topics for Bachelor and Master students

The current main goal in research for LENA and JUNO is the simulation of data to determine the sensitivity in different areas of research and the development of readout electronic for the JUNO detector. You should bring interest in particle physics and commitment. Knowledge in C++ , python or hardware are desirable but not necessary for the thesis.

In particular, the group currently offers the following thesis topics (D = detector / hardware, Comp = computing, A = analysis, MC = simulation):

Bachelor thesis:

  • Measurement, simulation and reconstruction of photomultiplier pulses for the JUNO detector (D/A)
  • Improvement of the angular reconstruction of muons with the JUNO detector (MC/A)
  • Thermal simulation of the JUNO electronics (D/MC)
  • Measurement of different power board properties dependent of the temperature and the electrical load (D/A)

Master thesis:

  • Measurement of the neutrino mass with neutrinos from black hole production processes (MC/A)
  • Improvement of the angular reconstruction of muons with the JUNO detector (MC/A)
