Experimental HEP and Instrumentation


High Energy Physics and InstrumentationAt IFCA, while exploring the LHC's uncharted landscape, we are getting ready for the future, contributing to the upgrade activities of the LHC to push forward again the energy and intensity frontier. We are also currently engaged in the R&D phase towards a new experiment, an electron-positron collider able to reach the Teraelectronvolt energy scale. The clean experimental conditions of the electron-positron experiments allows the precise determination of many of properties the expected and unexpected new particles to-be-discovered at LHC. ​

Intrumentation wise the HEP group is participating in the high-luminosity upgrade of the Inner Tracker detector of the Compact Muon Solenoid Experiment at LHC, recently the group has joint the MIP timing detector of this same experiment.
