T-REX Home


Some of the parts of this web page are still under construction. 

Welcome to the homepage of the T-REX project in the Universidad de Zaragoza!!

TREX stands for TPCs (Time Projection Chambers) for Rare Event eXperiments.
It is an R&D project aiming to develop novel detectors (TPCs) for low background applications in Astroparticle Physics, like the search for Dark Matter, axions or neutrino physics.

Although some first activities along this line were already active in the Group of Nuclear and Astroparticle Physics of the Universidad de Zaragoza, this line of research was awarded by a Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) in 2009 (PI: Igor G Irastorza)

In this web you will find general information on T-REX and the physics of Rare Events, our research activity including publications and talks in conferences and our outreach activity.

The latest information can be found under the News category.

Don’t hesitate to leave us your impression or questions! Enjoy!

This research is partly funded by the European Research Council
