The Isotope Physics research group operates the particle accelerator "VERA" (Vienna Environmental Research Accelerator), a modern facility for accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS). Research projects focus on the investigation of our world by means of elements occurring in minute traces, using long-lived radioisotopes of both natural and anthropogenic origin. We conduct basic physics experiments as well as a variety of interdisciplinary research programs. Research at VERA contributes to the faculty focus "Physics and Environment". If you are interested in a guided tour of our facility, you will find all the important information and registration details here.
