KARMEN (KArlsruhe Rutherford Medium Energy Neutrino experiment), a detector associated with the ISIS synchrotron at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Neutrinos for study are supplied via the decay of pions produced when a proton beam strikes a target.

KARMEN's most noteworthy result to date has been an anomaly in detected event timings that may be interpreted as a heavy neutrino variant, possibly a supersymmetric neutralino particle.
