Running in parallel to the existing MAMI electron accelerator, the new workhorse of the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the University of Mainz is an energy recovering electron recirculator capable of delivering 1 mA polarized currents at 105 MeV to a fix target experiment in its path. The Magix experiment is currently being developed to exploit that power to perform high-precision experiments in that energy range. This poster will present part of the ambitious physics program of that experiment including, among others, the search for new particles like the possible new dark mediators in both the visible and invisible decay channels and the precision spectroscopy below the hadronization threshold to improve the constraints on the electronic radius of the proton and to test the prediction of modern effective field theories.
