  In brief, our group's main interests in these areas are

  • ATLAS programme: analysis of the experimental data in order to search for the Higgs boson, supersymmetric particles and evidence of extra dimensions, and the physics of the top quark. We also have a major involvement in the trigger and data acquisition system. The ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is expected to collect its first proton-proton collision data in Summer 2009.

The ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN has started collecting data and is now the highest energy proton collider in the world.
