Particle and Nuclear Physics

Particle Physics

  • Energy Frontier Physics - testing theory and searching for new physics such as the Higgs boson at ATLAS.
  • CP Violation - Investigating the origins of the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe at LHCb.
  • Precision Flavour Physics - Probing ultra-rare decays of particles containing strange quarks at NA62.

Nuclear Physics

  • Researching properties of nuclei and their constituents using radioactive beams, laser spectroscopy and ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions.
