Ice Cube

Neutrinotelescope at the South Pole - IceCube is a detector for high-energy neutrinos. Construction of the detector started during the 2004/2005 season. In its final confiugration the detector consists of about 4800 optical modules with phtoto-multiplier tubes sunk into the ice at a depths between 1400 and 2400 m. The 80 strings of optical modules fill a volume of approximately one cubic kilometer.

ATLAS

Accelerator based particle physics. Currently our research activities are concentrated to the ATLAS experiment which is running att CERNs largest accelerator - the Large Hadron Collider, LHC.

We are engaged in the construction and operation of two parts of the detector - readout electronics for the hadron calorimeter and the first level calorimeter trigger.

We are analysing data for three specific studies: measurement of the top-quark production corss -section, search for metastable particleas and search for Supersymmetry or other phenomena beyond the standard model.

Astroparticle- & Elementary Particle Physics.

At the department of Physics at Stockholm University

Our research focus is within the areas of astro-oarticla and elementary particle physics. The group conosists of about 15 senior physicists and about 10 PhD students.

Currently our most important engagemens are the neutrino telescope IceCube at the South Pole and the ATLAS experiment at the Larch Hadron Colllidere at CERN.

 

Student in the group

We can offer projects suitable both as independent project works for a B.Sc. and as master projects.

If you are interested in finding a project within our group please contact a member of our group.

When there are possibilities to apply for PhD positions in the group you will find these advertised on the web page of the department, for more information on PhD studies consult the information on the department web.

 

The research

Our research aims at understainding the most funamental aspects of nature.

During the last decades this type of resarch has seen a development where studiew of elementary particles - the very smallest constitutents of matter - and cosmolgy - the study of how our universe was created and has been developing - have become intertwined.
