Welcome to the Liverpool Particle Physics Group

Welcome from Group Leader, Professor Themis Bowcock.

The Liverpool University Particle Physics Group is one of the most active in the UK. Its programme includes working at the energy and precision frontiers of physics and in studying the properties of quarks and neutrinos. We know that there must be new undiscovered physics to explain phenomena such as the excess of matter over  antimatter and both dark matter and dark energy. The group’s research focussed on the discovery the nature of this new physics through a range of exciting experiments. This is made possible through the development of new technologies which also have direct impact on society as a whole. As a team of almost 90 researchers including theorists, programmers, engineers, technicians and students we are a leading centre for the study of the fundamental properties of the universe.
