Particle Physics is all about understanding the fundamental building blocks of matter and how they interact with each other. To do this, modern Particle Physicists build large experiments where particles are made to smash into one another. Detectors are built around where these collisions occur, and the particles resulting from the interaction are studied.
Now is a very exciting time in Particle Physics. The Bristol Particle Physics group is involved in two experiments based at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN: CMS and LHCb. These experiments allow us to probe nature at its most fundamental level.
We are also involved in a variety of research and development projects for future experiments.
