Reseach & Teaching

The research field of the group is in the area of experimental particle physics. The aim of our work is to explore new physics in high energy reactions of elementary particles. Using accelerators, like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN we want to discover new forces or new types of matter. Together with new measurements in astophysics there is great hope to uncover in the coming years the physical processes right after the big bang and to gain a better understanding of the nature of the dark matter and energy in the universe.

We are member of the Atlas Experiment in Geneva. Furthermore we work at the COMPASS Experiment to study the structure of the proton and at the CAST experiment. With the Atlas Experiment we study proton proton reactions at energies of 7 TeV. In this way we can explore a completely new energy range which offers the possibilities for new discoveries. A theory group works on the theoretical fundaments of particle physics
