Research & Teaching


Research at the physics department of University of Geneva is divided into 4 main topics: Theoretical physics, condensed matter physics, applied physics and particule physics.

The particle physics department (DPNC) studies the fundamental structures and laws of nature from the largest dimensions in the Universe to the smallest of the microcosm by using three complementary approaches:

  • high-energy particle collisions with CERN´s LHC and the ATLAS detector, and ideas for future accelerators such as the FCC hh-ee-he
  • experiments with neutrinos (T2K, Hyper-Kamiokande)
  • astroparticle physics experiments on the ground (IceCube, CTA) and in space (AMS, POLAR, DAMPE)
More recently medical physics and its connection to particle physics has been added to this list.
