Department of Fundamental Research (DBP)

The DBP Department comprises four Divisions:


Research topics:

  • Proton/nuclei interactions at the highest available energies (LHC, CERN, Geneva – the ALICE, CMS and LHCb experiments).
  • Neutrino oscillations and experimental determination of neutrino mass (the T2K and ICARUS experiments).
  • Proton/electron and proton/muon collisions observed to study proton structure and origin of its spin (the COMPASS and HERMES experiments). Department staff is involved also in theoretical works on the subject.
  • Hadron structure and the role of fundamental symmetries in the relatively low collision energy region (the KLOE-2 and WASA experiments).
  • Super-heavy nuclei structure (the ISOLDE experiment). Department staff has been involved also in theoretical works on super-heavy nuclei synthesis / stability for many years.
  • Observations of various categories astrophysical objects including large-scale structures of the Universe, in particular properties and evolution of galaxies (the VIPERS, VVDS, AKARI projects). Search for optical phenomena that accompany gamma bursts (the Pi of the Sky project).
  • Development of quantum cosmology aimed to explain nature of cosmological singularity, primordial gravitational radiation and problem of time.
  • Research on cosmic rays (experimental observations of energy distribution, theoretical modelling of interactions with the Earth atmosphere).
