Torben Ferber is professor for particle physics
at the Institute for experimental particle physics (ETP)
at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

Physics Research

Ferber's team focuses on dark matter searches at the intensity frontier with the Belle II experiment in Japan. This includes searches for dark photons decaying into light dark matter, searches for axion-like particles (ALPs), and searches for long-lived particles (LLPs). They are also working on flavour physics in B decays and on precision measurements needed for the hadronic vacuum polarization (HVP) corrections for the anomalous magnetic moment g-2 of the muon. His team is responsible for the reconstruction software of the Belle II electromagnetic calorimeter, and they are active in R&D work towards real time pulse shape analysis in anorganic scintillators. You can find a list of his publications on INSPIRE or ORCID.
