31/5/2010: CERN PRESS RELEASE

EXPERIMENT OPERA REPORTS THE FIRST PROBABLE EXAMPLE EVER OF THE APPEARANCE OF A TAU-NEUTRINO IN A TAU-MUON BEAM, ISSUED AT CERN IN THE CNGS BEAM AND OBSERVED 730KM AWAY AT THE ITALIAN GRAN SASSO NATIONAL LABORATORY

16/6/2015: INFN PRESS RELEASE

EXPERIMENT OPERA REPORTS A FIFTH TAU NEUTRINO DETECTED AT GRAN SASSO, DEMONSTRATING NON VANISHING NEUTRINO MASS PROVING BY APPEARANCE THE EXISTENCE OF MASS OSCILLATIONS AT THE FIVE STANDARD DEVIATIONS LEVEL

16/12/2015: ATLAS NEWS

ATLAS COMPLETES FIRST YEAR AT 13 TeV



We study the Physics of Elementary Particles.

Experiments study the outcome of collisions of accelerated particles,
observed in detectors.
Experiments and detectors carry a common name.

The group has been involved in two completed experiments:
OPAL, studying electron positron collisions with the LEP collider,
CHORUS, searching for mass oscillations of neutrinos from the SPS proton synchrotron.


is active in two current experiments:
ATLAS, to study proton proton collisions at record energy with the LHC accelerator,
OPERA, for further search for mass oscillations of neutrinos from the SPS proton synchrotron.


The group has been involved in the CERN RD 46 collaboration for R&D concerning microtracking devices and imaging. It has also been involved in the CHARON experiment, to help calibrate CHORUS.
