Contact: Jeff Hartnell

Sussex is a leading research university with over 90 per cent of Sussex research activity rated as world leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised. This places the University among the leading 30 research universities in the UK.

The Experimental Particle Physics (EPP) Research Group aims to answer some of the fundamental questions posed by modern physics, such as: What is the origin of mass? Why is there more matter than anti-matter in the Universe? What is the nature of the neutrino? Is there physics beyond the Standard Model? In attempting to answer these questions the EPP group has leading roles in a number of experiments:  ATLAS at CERN's Large Hadron Collider;  NOvA and MINOS+ that use the NuMI neutrino beam at Fermilab, USA;  CryoEDM that is searching for the Electric Dipole Moment (EDM) of the neutron at ILL, Grenoble;  SNO+ and DEAP that are located at SNOLAB, Canada.  They also host a Grid Computing site.
