Prof. Wermes’ research focus is High Energy Particle Physics at Colliders such as the Large Hadron Collider (pp - collisions) or e+e- - Colliders with emphasis on weak interactions and Higgs physics. Apart from analyzing the measurement data recorded with the large detectors at these colliders for fundamental particle physics questions and searches for new physics, his additional strong interest and focus is in the development of high precision detectors to make such measurements feasible, most notably semiconductor pixel detectors. This includes the development of micro-electronics sensors and integrated circuits.
