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.


The European Commission signed first grant agreements under Horizon Europe and VERA is one of the beneficiaries of the selected projects.
