Science at IFAE

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 telescopes in La Palma, the Dark Energy Survey project in Chile and the Cherenkov Telescope Array in La Palma and Chile, among others.

We focus our research on the hottest topics in fundamental physics from particles to the cosmos.
