Research in High Energy Physics

Lead Research Organisation: Imperial College London
Department Name: Dept of Physics


Investigation into the properties of elementary particles and the fundamental forces of nature. Precision tests of the Standard Model (SM); searches for new phenomena and extensions to the SM; studies of CP violation in the b-system; measurement of neutrino oscillation parameters; WIMP dark matter searches, preparations for future experiments, including HL-LHC, feasibility studies for future neutrino factories, double-beta decay experiments, gravitational wave detectors and linear colliders.
