Centre for Particle Physics

This is the home page of the Centre for Particle Physics, part of the Physics Department at Royal Holloway, University of London. It contains information about the centre's activities, research materials, helpful guides on computing, visiting high energy laboratories, getting started with the grid. A practical guide to doing high energy or accelerator physics at Royal Holloway.

Research activities

Atlas experiment Standard Model of particle physics Feynman diagram - Higgs production AccessPipe1 Laser beam diagnostics Data acquisition electronics Grid computing

The research at Royal Holloway focuses on fundamental questions in physics today. We have a substantial group working on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) as well as on the BaBar experiment. Research on the accelerator technologies required to build future accelerators is carried out in the John Adams Institute as well as R&D for future detector systems. Research in particle physics theory and phenomenology with focus on the search for new physics at the LHC and the study of dark matter in the universe is carried out in the Phenomenology group. We are also involved in Grid computing.
