11.05.2016 LHC and ATLAS back into operation

On March 25, 2016, the most powerful collider in the world, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, has resumed operation after its annual winter break, with a center of mass energy of 13 TeV. The Laboratory of High Energy Physics and the Albert Einstein Center at Bern (LHEP/AEC) play a key role in ATLAS, one of the four large experiments. The accelerator complex and the experiments have been turned on and tested over the last weeks and detectors have now started the data taking.

The Laboratory for High Energy Physics (LHEP) is a division of the Physics Institute at the University of Bern, Switzerland.
We conduct research in the field of experimental particle physics. The five main subjects are:

The LHEP has also been involved in experiments on low energy QCD studies, strange-matter, quark-gluon plasma, etc.
