Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum

The Ruhr-University Bochum has two experimental and two theoretical groups, exclusively working in hadronic physics. The antiproton project at FAIR was initiated from here. The expertise of the theory group on the analysis, modeling and theoretical study of partonic distributions is internationally well known. RUB is the world leader in design and construction of polarized solid state targets. The experimental hadron physics group has a long history of analysis of experimental data. In addition the group was involved in the construction and operation of electromagnetic calorimeters at CERN, ELSA (Crystal Barrel) and at SLAC (Babar). It has a leading role in the construction of the electromagnetic calorimeter for PANDA at FAIR. Also analyses of data from BESIII, CLAS and Crystal Barrel as well Monte Carlo simulations for PANDA are performed. An emphasis is on partial wave analysis. A lab for pupils is available for outreach activities. Activities for school girls are performed frequently.

RUB has specific roles in NA1-FAIRnet, JRA7-HaSP and JRA10-CryPTA.

RUB has the responsibility of NA1-FAIRnet (Fritz-Herbert Heinsius).

EC funds in NA1-FAIRnet, JRA7-HaSP and JRA10-CryPTA.
