RWTH Aachen - I. Physiklaisches Insitut B

The I. Physikalisches Insitut B has a leading position in the AMS experiment, which is installed on the International Space Station. We have made major contributions to the development and the construction of the Transition Radiation Detector, Anti Coincidence Counter and the Tracker Laser Alignment System. We are responsible for the calibration and operation of these AMS subdetectors. In physics analysis we have focussed on the measurements of cosmic ray electrons, positrons, protons and antiprotons.
