Topics for Bachelor and Master students

The current main goal in research for 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:

  • Waveform reconstruction for the JUNO experiment (MC/A)
  • Reconstruction of photomultiplier signals with the Firmeware of the Global Control Unit (FPGA) (D/A)
  • Programming of the Firmeware of the Global Control Unit (FPGA) (D)
  • Inverstigation of neutrino signals from supernova and neutronstar mergers (A/MC)

Master Thesis:

  • Application of the Double Chooz likelihood analysis on the oszillation measurement in JUNO (MC/A)
  • Particle Identification using Deep Learning Methods (MC/A)
  • Inverstigation of neutrino signals from supernova and neutronstar mergers (A/MC)
  • Test of the novel VULCAN-chip for handling fast photomultiplier signals (D/A)
  • Simulation, measurement and reconstruction of PMT pulses in the JUNO experiment (DC/D/A)
  • Reconstruction of photoelectron signals in the firmware of the Global Control Unit (D/A)
  • Sensitivity studies of the OSIRIS pre-detector on contaminations of the liquid scintillator for the JUNO experiment (MC/A)
