Research & Teaching

The Universidad Simón Bolívar (USB) is a public institution located in Miranda state, Venezuela with scientific and technological orientation. It is one of the main universities of the country. It was founded in 1967. The department of physics encloses the teaching and research of several theoretical and experimental physics subjects: condensed matter, plasma physics, material science, nuclear physics, optics and high energy physics. The experimental HEP effort started recently, in 2010, with the participation in the LAGO Collaboration, for the detection of gamma rays. On the other hand, the theory research effort covers a wide range of fields, including phenomenology of hadronic matter, SUSY and extra dimensions models.

Additionally, we have created several spaces for the dissemination of particle physics such as seminars and special training courses. An experimental particle physics course is imparted by the CEVALE2VE group since 2014 and is included in our Physics Master program. This course and other outreach activities are done in close collaboration with other Colombian and Venezuelan institutes.
