High energy physics (HEP)

Bildet kan inneholde: produkt, skrift, deling, smil, collage.

In the HEP Section we research the fundamental particles and forces of nature under extreme conditions, at the current time mainly through the observation of proton-proton and heavy ionized nuclei collisions in the ATLAS and ALICE experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the world’s leading laboratory for HEP at CERN, in Geneva Switzerland. One of the leading questions in HEP after the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN in 2012 is the nature of the vast amount of dark matter in the universe. In addition to the measurements and particle searches we do at CERN, several of which are highly relevant to the dark matter question, the Section is involved in preparations of the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), which among other quests will look for evidence of dark matter annihilation out in the universe.

We offer master projects from the full spectrum of activities of HEP: experimental and computational studies of future particle accelerators; experimental, phenomenological and computational studies of the quark-gluon plasma; and precision measurements and searches for new phenomena with proton-proton collisions. In addition we have strong activities in developing educational material and distributed computational and data storage management systems for HEP, and developing and constructing electronics systems and advanced particle detection systems for HEP experiments.
