Experimental particle and nuclear physics, accelerator physics (A2)

Research Areas:
Experimental particle physics, Experimental Nuclear Physics, High Energy Physics , Nuclear Astrophysics, Accelerator Physics
The A2 sub-course is for studying atomic nuclei and elementary particles, the fundamental constituents of the observable matter in the universe, using cutting-edge experimental technologies and accelerators. To investigate simple principles on both a large and small scale, our research necessarily considers various topics. In particular, basic questions will be addressed: Why does matter have mass? How was the universe created? What are the mechanisms responsible for synthesizing the variety of elements we see on earth? What are the limits where beautiful symmetries arise or break down?
