The SFB 676 has been funded by the DFG from 2006 to 2018. The project was completed with a special colloquium in June 2018. A book with the scientific results of the SFB 676 has been published in September 2018.

J. Haller and M. Grefe (eds.), “Particles, Strings and the Early Universe: The Structure of Matter and Space-Time,” Hamburg (2018), DOI: 10.3204/PUBDB-2018-00782.

Many research directions developed within the SFB 676 will be continued within the Cluster of Excellence "Quantum Universe" starting 1 January 2019.


Section C of the SFB researches topics in cosmology. Currently, our main interests are

  • the physics of axions and other very weakly interacting slim particles

  • the origin of dark matter and dark energy

  • leptogenesis as the origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry

  • the possibility of variable constants in nature

  • quantum field theory in an expanding universe
