Winner under 40 category:
Dr. Karoline Schäffner
Max-Planck-Institute for Physics, Werner Heisenberg Institut


Dr. Schäffner has developed a novel approach for experiments searching Dark Matter.By using her solid expertise of mK physics, she has built a prototype of an experiment to search Dark Matter at LNGS based on a new background rejection technique with cryogenic detectors. This is the base for the COSINUS project now being aiming to direct observation of Dark Matter.
