Welcome to the Heeger Group @ Yale

Prof. Heeger’s group is carrying out cutting-edge experiments studying the properties of neutrinos, searching for rare event processes, and exploring the invisible Universe. The aim of these experiments is to solve some of the greatest mysteries of the Universe:
What does the invisible Universe consist of?
Why does the Universe have more matter than anti-matter?
What are the properties of neutrinos? 
The lab is led by Prof. Heeger in the Department of Physics located at the Yale Wright Laboratory.
