Experimental Particle Physics Research Group

Welcome

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. We are part of the Department of Physics and Astronomy within the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Sussex.

 

We have funded PhD studentship places available from September 2019 across all areas of our research.

ATLAS

Is there physics beyond the Standard Model?

Discover how the ATLAS group at Sussex are  undertaking searches for new particles and making precision measurements using the LHC at CERN. We found the Higgs boson - what's next?

nEDM

Why is there more matter than anti-matter in the Universe?

Find out how the NeutronEDM experiment is investigating the dominance of matter over antimatter in the Universe, via the mysterious CPT violation. Prepare for some seriously strong magnetic fields...

SNO+

Is the Neutrino its own antiparticle?

 

SNO+ is probing the properties of neutrinos from the bottom of a mine in Canada - the ideal location to balance with the glamour of neutrino oscillations.

DEAP

What is Dark Matter?

Searching for Dark Matter with the DEAP experiment.

NOνA & DUNE

What is the nature of the neutrino?

Discovering neutrino properties with long-baseline experiments.

GridPP / HPC

 

The HPC facilities at Sussex and how we are involved in the LHC computing grid.
