Welcome to the department of physics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany.

The EDELWEISS experiment at the Modane underground lab is searching for Dark Matter. Despite 1800m of rock overburden, a few cosmic muons reach the experiment and induce neutron background as shown in this GEANT4 MC simulation. The Institut für Experimentelle Kernphysik measures these muon-induced neutrons withz dedicated detectors in the undergound lab.
