Prof. Dr. Johannes Albrecht

ERC group leader at the chair of Experimentelle Physik 5, TU Dortmund


My research is centered around the LHCb experiment at CERN with a focus on:

  • Flavour physics and tests of fundamental symmetries in rare beauty decays
  • Development of fast tracking and trigger algorithms for the LHCb High Level Trigger
  • Development of tracking detectors

A popular introduction into the CERN and the LHC, with videos from Dortmund, can be found here.

May 2020
In times of virtual meetings and conferences Titus and Vitalii prepared talks for a wider audience. While Titus is giving a talk about the search of rare \(B\) decays at the Phenomenology Symposium in Pittsburgh, Vitalii is presenting an overview of recent LHCb results in rare decays at the CERN seminar.

April 2020
With the beginning of the summer semester Johannes has taken up a Heisenberg professorship at the TU Dortmund University. The whole group congratulates him on this great step and wishes him all the best for the coming time.

March 2020
The first search for the rare decays \(B_{(s)}\rightarrow e^+e^-\) was uploaded to arXiv and submitted to PRL. Congratulations to Titus and Alexander who took a leading role in the analysis.
