DM searches at CP3

As reported today in the UCLouvain portal, a new line of research has started in CP3, bridging observational cosmology and particle physics. Thanks to a grant financed by INNOVIRIS, Chiara Arina will lead a team of young researchers towards new promising directions in clarifying the nature of Dark Matter. Read more...

The Physics Department at UCLouvain has been involved for a number of decades in high energy particle physics research, equally strongly on the experimental and instrumental fronts as on the theoretical one. In spite of being located in physically distinct places, all these activities are now brought together within a common organisational structure, the Centre for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3). This structure reinforces the collaboration of these varied components and competences in the physics of the fundamental interactions and the elementary particles.
