In spring 1997 I have joined the Nuclear Physics A group here at the Department of Physics of the University of Edinburgh.
So far I've involved in experiments at:
A first write-up on the Edinburgh Germanium Telescope, a development I have been busy with for quite a while now.
A halo nuclei experiment, something which can be cleanly done using tagged photons.
Some photos of TAPS experiments which are running in Mainz.
Having heard of the timing anomaly seen in the KARMEN experiment, I was initiating an experiment at PSI to search for such a hypothetical heavy neutrino in 1995, during my PhD time.
Additional motivation has emerged in the meantime, and there are a few photos of the MUEX experiment performed in July 1999 at PSI to look for a hypothetical binary decay branch of the muon.
Below are links to papers from our searches for a possible massive particle which could explain the timing anomaly seen in the KARMEN experiment.
Camerata vocalis Tübingen
Chamber Choir of the University of Tübingen
a little booklet and a photo album
concert tour to Africa in autumn 1996
Ostrava, june 1997, Janacek festival
Albania and Greece, may+june 1998
Carmina Burana 1999 a number of photos from rehearsal, concert and afterwards
My photo gallery holds pictures from places where I have travelled to and was lucky enough to have my vintage digital camera with me. You will also find the odd scanned photo there.
With my significant intererest in music I though why not gathering bits and pieces of music, especially a capella music I happened to have recorded on a sound gallery. I mostly started this before mp3 came around, so you find AIFF, AU and WAV files there which do not reflect the full quality of the original. I know that mp3 would give about the same file sizes while conserving the original quality.
And I started a page on a capella music with links to the odd web pages I've written on music groups. I had been singing for a couple of years in the Vocaholics, a 'men only' a capella pop group in Tübingen. They (we) are quite special in concert. Then there is the Junger Süddeutscher Kammerchor, Berhard Epstein's ongoing effort for a high quality chamber choir. It is really worth listening to them in concert.
Then there are a few half-started pages like travelling by train, remarks on a bridge or ßßß - capital ß where I think I spent too much effort as to simply discart them.
A photo page about the volcanos of Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens in the Cascades.
More recently I have created two more pages. The first is about the Kochertalbahn in the southwest of Germany, a disused railway nowadays but which did have and also might have in future a reasonable potential both for passenger and freight traffic. The second, now actually a collection of pages, is about the funicular in Künzelsau, which started operation in October 1999. The pages are in german, english and french language.
