Fisica delle Particelle

I fisici delle particelle in svizzera intendono rendere comprensibile ad un pubblico interessato l’ affascinante mondo della ricerca e discutere insieme ai rappresentanti di altre discipline circa l’importanza di essa per la nostra società.

Modern physics relies on an elegant «Standard Model of particle physics», a quantum field theory based on three symmetries and a symmetry breaking. This theory describes and explains magnificently all experimental results obtained so far. With the discovery of the Higgs particle in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the last missing piece of the Standard Model has been experimentally confirmed. Experiments at CERN and at other international laboratories now continue to test the validity and limits of the Standard Model in ever widening scope. However, for a comprehensive understanding of the laws of nature a theory beyond the Standard Model is needed, which should include gravitation and explain the presence of dark matter and dark energy in the universe.

One focus point is the multi-messenger astronomy

On 9 January 2018 the Astroparticle Physics European Consortium (APPEC) will officially launch its new Strategy 2017-2026 in Brussels. The strategy is addressing the main scientific issues of astroparticle physics in the upcoming decade. Teresa Montaruli – physics professor at the University of Geneva and the representative of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) and of the CHIPP association of professors in the APPEC General Assembly – gives an outlook on the key messages of the new strategy.

Wie gross ist das Weltall?

Erst als die Himmelskörper nicht mehr als Gottheiten verstanden wurden, der Himmel in unendliche Weiten entschwand, die Erde nicht mehr als Mittelpunkt des Universums galt, erhob sich die Frage nach den Entfernungen der Planeten und Sterne. Seit etwa 400 Jahren bemühen sich die Astronomen darum, aber die Distanzmessung ist auch heute noch nicht einfach.

Neutrini dal nulla

Grazie all’Università di Ginevra gli astrofisici svizzeri possono partecipare a IceCube – l’enorme esperimento situato al polo Sud concepito per studiare i neutrini.
Gli scienziati vogliono con IceCube trovare l’esatta origine dei neutrini presenti nell’universo. Per più di due anni la giovane ricercatrice Tessa Carver (24) sta collaborando all’esperimento.

Beam Dynamics and Technologies for Future Colliders

CERN accelerator School ad Paul Scherrer Institute are organizing this course. The course will be of interest to staff and students from laboratories and universities who wish to learn about the various options being considered for future colliders for high-energy physics. The material presented will be at an accessible level and cover circular hadron and lepton colliders, as well as linear lepton colliders. The programme will cover the beam dynamics of the colliders presently under consideration and the associated technologies that will be needed to build them.
Beam generation and machine protection issues will also be addressed.
Students will have the opportunity to work on realistic case studies throughout
the school.

Fisici delle perticelle svizzeri in dialogo con il pubblico

Dietro il progetto è l'Istituto Svizzero di Fisica delle Particelle (CHIPP), organizzazione suprema delle varie istituzioni svizzere di fisica delle particelle con un totale di 500 membri.
