Company profile

The mission of the National Institute for Subatomic Physics Nikhef is to study the interactions and structure of all elementary particles and fields at the smallest distance scale and the highest attainable energy.
Two complementary approaches are followed

1) Accelerator based particle physics Studying interactions in particle collision processes at particle accelerators, in particular at CERN

2) Astroparticle physics Studying interactions of particles and radiation emanating from the Universe.

Nikhef coordinates and leads the Dutch experimental activities in these fields. The research at Nikhef relies on the development of innovative technologies. The knowledge and technology transfer to third parties, i.e., industry, civil society and general public, is an integral part of the mission of Nikhef

KM3NeT Tubes

Nikhef develops a super-telescope that detects neutrino particles from distant astrophysical sources such as supernovae, gamma ray bursters or colliding stars. KM3NeT consists of a network of cables and spheres with detectors and has a size of over one cubic kilometre. For KM3NeT MCAP developed tubes more
