Swiss Institute of Particle Physics

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.

CERN collaborations present new results on charmed particles at online conference

The ALICE, CMS and LHCb collaborations present new measurements that show how particles containing charm quarks can serve as “messengers” of hadrons and the quark–gluon plasma, carrying information about these forms of matter.
This media update is part of a series related to the 2020 Large Hadron Collider Physics (LHCP2020) conference, taking place 25–30 May 2020.

La start-up Positrigo utilizza i risultati della fisica delle particelle per la diagnosi precoce del morbo di Alzheimer

La tomografia ad emissione di positroni (PET) aiuta i medici a rilevare il cancro e molte altre malattie. Un team di ricercatori guidato dal professor Günther Dissertori sta lavorando a una nuova generazione di scanner per PET che in futuro potrebbero essere di grande utilità nella ricerca farmacologica e nel trattamento dei malati di Alzheimer. L'innovazione tecnica si basa, tra l'altro, sulla ricerca fondamentale al CERN.

CHART lavora sugli acceleratori di particelle del futuro

FCC - queste tre lettere rappresentano la visione di un nuovo acceleratore circolare che potrebbe essere costruito presso il laboratorio europeo di fisica delle particelle CERN a Ginevra. Con questo obiettivo a lungo termine, cinque anni fa i fisici svizzeri hanno fondato l'iniziativa di ricerca CHART. Ora è disponibile il dimostratore di un potente magnete. Se i test hanno esito positivo, verrà raggiunto un primissimo passo verso progressi decisivi nelle infrastrutture per la ricerca di base, ma anche in applicazioni come, ad esempio, strumentazione innovativa per terapie mediche.

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.
Wins the CHIPP Prize 2018: Dr. Claudia Tambasco.

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.
