Explore HEP



Join us at the LIP-ATLAS group to explore the world of High-Energy Physics.

You will also learn what we do at CERN, how the LHC works, and how the CMS detector collects data. Grab this opportunity to ask all the questions you might have about particle physics.

Searching for Higgs boson interactions with the lightest charged lepton

Have you ever wondered what High-Energy Physics is? What exactly it takes to run an experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider? Or perhaps how the Higgs boson was discovered?

Does the Higgs boson follow all of the rules set by the Standard Model? Since discovering the particle in 2012, the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations have been hard at work studying the behaviour of the Higgs boson. Any unexpected observations could be a sign of new physics beyond the Standard Model.

The ATLAS experiment at LIP

LIP is member of the ATLAS Collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN since 1992. The scientific motivations of the research at the LHC are at the heart of our quest for understanding the fundamental physics laws of the universe.
