 Observing Inflationary ReheatingEditor's suggestion of the Physical Review Letters features CP3's research in Cosmology. J. Martin, C. Ringeval and V. Vennin work shows that the current Cosmic Microwave Background measurements by the Planck satellite can be used to learn about the so-called reheating era; the first epoch at which the Universe acquired a (very hot) temperature.

 3rd year's students go to CERNAs every year, PhD students in particle physics showed 3rd year bachelor's students around at CERN for two full days of intensive visits. This trip was organized as part of their first lecture about particle physics and featured visits of experiments CP3 has contributed to, such as CMS and NA62, but also many other experiments and facilities...

 A CP3 member receives a 2015 CMS achievement awardOn February 9th CMS celebrated a total of 28 CMS members who received the CMS achievement award, in special recognition for their contributions to the CMS experiment. Dr. Jonathan Jason Hollar (Université Catholique de Louvain) was one of them, “For his outstanding contributions to the CT-PPS TDR, particularly the feasibility study on the measurement of exclusive WW production.” 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.
