Research subject Astroparticle and Elementary Particle Physics

Our research is focused on understanding the most fundamental particles and forces of nature, and on how these building blocks have shaped the history and structure of the cosmos.

Our research activities are primarily oriented toward experiment.  The two projects with the largest engagement are the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole and the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
