The Institute for High Energy Physics

At IFAE we conduct experimental and theoretical research at the frontiers of fundamental physics, namely in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology. We are involved in the ATLAS project at the LHC, the T2K neutrino experiment in Japan, the MAGIC and CTA telescopes in La Palma and the Dark Energy Survey (DES) project in Chile, among others. We also work at the cutting edge of detector technology developing pixel detectors for High Energy Physics, telescope cameras and detectors for medical imaging and other scientific and industrial fields. IFAE is member of the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) and has been awarded with the Severo Ochoa recognition for excellence in research
