Centre for Particle Physics
This is the home page of the Centre for Particle Physics, part of the Physics Department at Royal Holloway, University of London. The Centre for Particle physics includes three main groups, the Experimental Particle Physics groups, the John Adams Institute and the Theoretical Particle Physics group.
The research at Royal Holloway focuses on fundamental questions in physics today. We have a substantial group working on the ATLAS experiment at the LHC, and a experimental dark matter group working on the MiniCLEAN, DEAP3600, and DMTPC experiments. Research on the accelerator technologies required to build future accelerators is carried out in the John Adams Institute, as well as R&D for future detector systems. Research in Theoretical Particle Physics, with focus on the study of Dark Matter in the Universe and Large Hadron Collider Phenomenology, is carried out in the Theoretical Particle Physics group. We are also involved in Grid computing.
