Fundamental physics


There is a long standing tradition in Trento for fundamental physics studies related to the INFN activities. TIFPA incorporated the groups taking part in all such research activities, providing a new development perspective. A list of the TIFPA experiments and groups involved in fundamental physics activities is provided below.

Particle Physics


Research activities aimed at understanding the basic building blocks of matter and their mutual interactions, based on experiments in particle accelerators.

ATLAS-RD_FASE2

Astroparticle Physics


Observational studies of cosmic radiation and particles, including the most elusive neutrino and the yet unknown dark matter and energy, using detectors in space, on the ground or on deep seabeds.

AMS2
DARKSIDE
FISH
HUMOR
LIMADOU
LISA PATHFINDER
VIRGO

Nuclear Physics

Experimental studies to understand the mechanisms that tie together quarks to form nuclei, based on high-energy collisions in particle accelerators.

AEGIS
