Experimental Particle Physics at Sussex
Welcome to the Wiki Page of the Experimental Particle Physics Group at the University of Sussex. We are part of the Department of Physics and Astronomy within the University's School of Mathematical and Physical Science.
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?
The EPP group has leading roles in a number of experiments: ATLAS at CERN's Large Hadron Collider; NOvA and MINOS+ that use the NuMI neutrino beam at Fermilab, USA; CryoEDM that is searching for the Electric Dipole Moment (EDM) of the neutron at ILL, Grenoble; SNO+ and DEAP that are located at SNOLAB, Canada. We also host a Grid Computing site.
