The High Energy Physics effort at the Niels Bohr Institute is concentrated around accelerator-based particle physics. Our main effort in these years is the ATLAS experiment at CERN, the world's leading laboratory for particle physics research.
High Energy Physics, also known as Particle Physics, is the field of physics that investigates the fundamental structure of the Universe by studying its fundamental constituents, particles in great details. As the low-energy behavior of matter is properly described in other areas of physics such as atomic physics or solid-state physics this is done by studying the behavior of matter at the extreme energies reached in particle accelerators or observed in ultra-high-energy cosmic rays.
ATLAS is a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN that is searching for new discoveries in the head-on collisions of protons of extraordinarily high energy. ATLAS will learn about the basic forces that have shaped our Universe since the beginning of time and that will determine its fate. Among the possible unknowns are extra dimensions of space, unification of fundamental forces, and evidence for dark matter candidates in the Universe. Following the discovery of the Higgs boson, further data will allow in-depth investigation of the boson's properties and thereby of the origin of mass.

Her kommer NBI gruppens bidrag til ATLAS projektet:
This group participates in the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. On the hardware side the group is involved in the Transition Radiation Tracker as well as in the Trigger-DAQ and on the physics side on final states containing tau-leptons or electrons.
