3. Course contents *

The course consists of hands-on experiments in the particle physics lab,  followed by a research-visit to CERN.
The experiments are performed alone or in groups of 2 persons, either at the University of Antwerpen or at the Free University of Brussels.
The main task is to (partly) build and use a muon detector telescope and measure the muon life-time.
