High Energy Physics Division (BP3)

Accelerator-based experiments

1. CMS (LHC in CERN)

2. LHCb (LHC in CERN)

3. ALICE (LHC in CERN)

  • Equipment: calibration of the PHOS photon detector
  • Topics: (i) multiplicity and spectrum of charged particles produced in p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions; (ii) preservation of CPT symmetry by means of measurement of differences between masses of nuclei and anti-nuclei
  • Contact: Professor Teodor Siemiarczuk teodor.siemiarczuk@ncbj.gov.pl

4. COMPASS (SPS in CERN)

  • Topics: (i) nucleon structure (including the spin structure); (ii) hadron spectroscopy using beams of muons/hadrons
  • Contact: Professor Andrzej Sandacz andrzej.sandacz@ncbj.gov.pl

5. WASA (COSY)

  • Topic: near-threshold production of pseudo-scalar mesons including search for the “dark photon”
  • Contact: Professor Joanna Stepaniak joanna.stepaniak@ncbj.gov.pl

6. ZEUS (HERA in DESY)

 

Neutrino physics

1. Neutrino oscillations in the T2K experiment

  • Equipment: Side Muon Range Detector – a part of the Near Detector, ND280
  • Topics: (i) oscillations of accelerator-produced neutrinos, including measurement of background for observations of electron neutrinos in T2K; (ii) measurement of cross sections for interactions of neutrinos with matter.

2. Measurements of hadron production in the p-C collisions in the NA61/SHINE experiment at SPS in CERN (for the T2K experiment)

3.ICARUS/DUNE: development of liquid argon-based neutrino detection techniques

4. Neutrino astrophysics at Super-Kamiokande, including search for dark matter
