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.

Zurich particle physicists make headlines with XENON collaboration

Axions are elementary particles with extremely low mass. So far they exist only in the brains of theoretical physicists, nobody has observed them. Really? Measurement results at detector XENON1T in Italy make one sit up and take notice.

Claudia Merlassino wins the CHIPP Prize 2020

Claudia Merlassino was born in Genoa, studied physics in Milan and completed her doctorate at the University of Bern in October 2019, since then she has been doing research at Oxford University in the UK. At the age of 28, the Italian experimental physicist has already made a remarkable journey as a researcher. She is now receiving the PhD prize in Swiss particle physics - among other things for her findings in the context of the most massive of all elementary particles.

Cinq élèves de secondaire remportent l’or aux Olympiades virtuelles suisses de physique 2020

La finale des olympiades de physique aurait dû avoir lieu en mars. En raison de la pandémie du coronavirus, les examens ont été reportés au 6 juin et organisés en ligne. Les 24 finalistes ont testé leurs connaissances depuis la maison. Le suspense était à son comble lors de l’annonce des résultats le 27 juin.

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.
