Astroparticle physicist Laura Baudis searches for hidden matter
SCNAT portrays Laura Baudis in the series Women Scientists in Former Male Domains.
The search for dark matter is one of the 'hot topics' in current elementary particle physics. Recently, powerful detectors have been developed that may be able to experimentally detect the components of this 'dark', invisible matter. Laura Baudis, professor of physics at the University of Zurich, has made a significant contribution to the development of this research infrastructure over the past 20 years.
