As Particle Physicists, we study the fundamental building blocks of nature. We do this by developing models and simulations to discover how the Universe works at the largest and smallest scales. Initially, these techniques allow experimentalists to optimally design their detectors, maximising chances of discovery. When taking data, our tools crucially separate the often small signal from the overwhelming haystack of the experimental background.
Check out how we do it:
We’re bringing an exhibition to the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London, from Tuesday 4 July to Sunday 9 July, where you’ll be able to use simulations built by us in order to solve physical problems. Come and see us, and to get some freebies ask us about supersymmetry!
