Electric field simulations and electric dipole investigations at the KATRIN main spectrometer

Hilk, Daniel Franz Rudolf

Abstract: This thesis deals with the development of high-accuracy electric field simulation methods and experimental background investigations with the electric dipole method for the KATRIN experiment. Both fields of work are of crucial importance to obtain the targeted background level of 10 mcps for the investigation of the absolute neutrino mass scale with a sensitivity of 200 meV/c² at 90% C.L.
