ELEMENTS

EXPLORING THE UNIVERSE FROM MICROSCOPIC TO MACROSCOPIC SCALES

The Research Cluster “ELEMENTS: Exploring the Universe from Microscopic to Macroscopic Scales” brings together world-leading scientists from distinct fields of research – the physics of particles and nuclei, the gravitational physics of neutron stars, and the nucleosynthesis of heavy elements – to combine the microscopical scales of elementary particles with the macroscopical scales of astrophysical objects. The ultimate goal is to address the question of the origin of the heavy chemical elements, such as gold and platinum, in our universe.
