Laboratory for High Energy Physics
|15.04.2015||Forefront position in interdisciplinary research|
LHEP and AEC are at the forefront when it comes to interdisciplinary reasearch at the University of Bern. In the last year, we have initiated four new interdisciplinary projects, which are all fundeded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) with a total of about 3 million CHF. The common aspect of all projects is that they bring well-established techniques and methods from experimental particle physics into other fields, covering very different research topics: from meteorite research and geology to medical and biological applications.
The Laboratory for High Energy Physics (LHEP) is a division of the Physics Institute at the University of
We conduct research in the field of experimental particle physics. The six main subjects are:
The LHEP has also been involved in experiments on low energy QCD studies, strange-matter, quark-gluon plasma, etc.
