Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP)

Lo Swiss Institute of Particle Physics CHIPP è un‘organizzazione federativa dei ricercatori svizzeri nel campo della fisica delle particelle, della fisica delle astroparticelle e della fisica nucleare. Ai compiti di CHIPP appartengono la coordinazione e il sostegno della partecipazione svizzera a progetti internazionali e a gruppi di lavoro internazionali, la coordinazione degli impegni di ricerca e di istruzione, nonché il lavoro con il pubblico.

This is achieved by keeping a continuous dialogue between the particle physicists of different cantonal universities and federal institutes. CHIPP is recognized as the representative of Swiss particle physics both nationally and internationally. It awards yearly a Prize to a PhD student, supports workshops and conferences, organises PhD schools, and develops outreach projects.

Presso l'Istituto di fisica dell'Università di Berna, Armin Fehr e i suoi colleghi hanno costruito il futuro "Rivelatore Interno" del rilevatore ATLAS su una scala 1: 1. Nel tubo a sinistra, si verificano le collisioni protone-protone. La casella rosso scuro mostra una delle regioni in cui saranno posizionati gli Optoboard.

Cinquanta Terabit di dati ogni secondo

A partire da 2026, le prestazioni dei grandi esperimenti al laboratorio Europeo di fisica delle particelle, il CERN, a Ginevra, saranno aumentate notevolmente. I lavori di preparazione per l’upgrade del grande acceleratore LHC e dei vari esperimenti è in pieno fermento. Un importante contributo viene dall’Università di Berna, dove il dottorando Armin Fehr (di 26 anni) e i suoi colleghi stanno lavorando su una componente dell’esperimento ATLAS. Questa componente renderà possibile acquisire i dati alla frequenza grandemente aumentata prevista dal 2026 in poi.

The Innovation Park “PARK INNOVAARE” in Villigen (AG) supports start-up companies in the field of accelerator technology.

CERN in Geneva is the leading particle physics laboratory worldwide. Large particle accelerators based on the most innovative technologies are used there for fundamental research. One year ago, the innovation park “PARK INNOVAARE” in Villigen (AG) launched, together with CERN, the BIC of CERN program: it supports start-ups and high-tech micro-companies using CERN technologies for commercial applications. These days the second call for proposals has started.

The LHCb collaboration at CERN has discovered a type of CP violation unobserved so far

The LHCb collaboration at CERN has seen, for the first time, the matter–antimatter asymmetry known as CP violation in a so-called D0 meson. LHCb is one of the four large experiments performed at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) with Swiss participation of Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and University of Zurich.

Joint Annual Meeting SPS/OPG

Board meetings

The CHIPP Board meeting is composed by the professors with activities in experimental or theoretical particle, astroparticle and nuclear physics and the heads of the experimental and theoretical particle physics groups at Paul Scherrer Institute. Universities without activities in particle, astroparticle or nuclear physics may nominate one representative. Members that have retired from the active professional life or have acquired the status of Professor emeritus may be admitted as Honorary Board Members.

CHIPP organisation

The Swiss Institute for Particle Physics (CHIPP) is an association according to Swiss law regrouping all the particle, astroparticle, and nuclear physicists holding a Master in physics and working for a Swiss institution, as well as the Swiss PhD nationals working at CERN.

Claudia Tambasco honoured with CHIPP Prize 2018

In order for physicists at CERN to carry out their experiments for the understanding of matter, the large particle accelerator LHC must be operated with the utmost precision. Ensuring this precision both now and in the future was the overriding goal of a doctoral thesis that Claudia Tambasco recently completed at the EPFL in Lausanne. For this work, the young researcher was today (28.08.2018) awarded the prize of the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP) at a ceremony in Lausanne.
