Experimental Particle Physics Research Group


Welcome to the Home Page of the Experimental Particle Physics Group at the University of Sussex.
Our research aims to answer some of the fundamental questions posed by modern physics, such as: What is the origin of mass? Why is there more matter than anti-matter in the Universe? What is the nature of the neutrino? Is there physics beyond the Standard Model?

We are part of the Department of Physics and Astronomy within the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Sussex. Our world leading research is focussing on the following experiments:

ATLAS : Searching for SUSY at the LHC
