Repelling Yet Still Sticking Together

How can a structure hold together if its individual components are actually repelling one another? An international research team has now demonstrated one example of such a highly excited exotic quantum state of matter. Researchers from the University of Bonn played a major role in the study. The findings have now been published in the journal “Nature.” 

Florian Bernlochner elected as new Belle II spokesperson

The international Belle II collaboration has elected Florian Bernlochner, Professor at the Physikalisches Institut of University of Bonn, as its next spokesperson. This role is of central importance to the collaboration. Starting in the summer of 2025, under his leadership, Belle II will prepare for an upgrade and collect data at unprecedented collision rates. Belle II plays a key role in the planned Excellence Cluster "Color meets Flavor".
