PhD defence ceremony

For every kilogram of ordinary matter, our universe contains 5.4 kilograms of dark matter – unknown particles that interact very weakly with atoms and light. Discovering the nature of dark matter is among the primary unsolved problems of particle physics. Jelle Aalbers uses XENON1T, one of the most sensitive dark matter detectors, to search for dark matter.
