Particle Physics Experiment

We seek understanding of the fundamental particles of nature and the interactions governing their behaviour. In particular, we aim to explain the dominance of matter over anti-matter through the study of CP violation with the LHCb experiment; to understand the mechanisms of electroweak symmetry breaking that lead to the creation of mass, and to search for new particles at ATLAS and future colliders; to discover and characterise particle dark matter with the LUX-ZEPLIN and DarkSide-20k experiments; and to explore neutrino oscillations, and neutrinos of astrophysical origin with experiments such as MicroBooNE, SBND, DUNE and SuperNEMO. Our research is underpinned through work on extensive distributed grid computing (GridPP), to store and analyse the vast quantities of data that are produced in these endeavours.
