Research & Teaching

The Laboratory for High Energy Physics (LHEP) is a division of the Physics Institute at the University of Bern, Switzerland.
We conduct research in the field of experimental particle physics. The five main subjects are:

The LHEP participates in the following international experiments: ATLAS, DIRAC, OPERA, T2K. The LHEP has also been involved in experiments on low energy QCD studies, search for dark-matter, strange-matter, quark-gluon plasma, etc.

The Physics Institute further comprises the Institutes for Climate and Environmental Physics (KUP), and the Space Research & Planetary Sciences (WP).

The members of the Physics Institute, the Institute for Applied Physics, the Institute for Theoretical Physics and the Institute for Astronomy offer the lecture series leading to a Bachelor, Master and PhD degree in physics at the University of Bern.


The Institutes organize every year an open day for interested pupils.
