This is achieved by keeping a continuous dialogue between the particle physicists of different cantonal universities and federal institutes. CHIPP is recognized as the representative of Swiss particle physics both nationally and internationally. It awards yearly a Prize to a PhD student, supports workshops and conferences, organises PhD schools, and develops outreach projects.

Zürcher Teilchenphysiker sorgen mit XENON-Kollaboration für Aufsehen

Axionen sind Elementarteilchen mit extrem geringer Masse. Bisher existieren sie nur in den Gedankengebilden von theoretischen Physikern, beobachtet hat sie niemand. Wirklich nicht? Messergebnisse an Detektor XENON1T in Italien lassen aufhorchen.

CERN collaborations present new results on charmed particles at online conference

The ALICE, CMS and LHCb collaborations present new measurements that show how particles containing charm quarks can serve as “messengers” of hadrons and the quark–gluon plasma, carrying information about these forms of matter.
This media update is part of a series related to the 2020 Large Hadron Collider Physics (LHCP2020) conference, taking place 25–30 May 2020.

Joint Annual Meeting SPS/OPG

Board meetings

The CHIPP Board meeting is composed by the professors with activities in experimental or theoretical particle, astroparticle and nuclear physics and the heads of the experimental and theoretical particle physics groups at Paul Scherrer Institute. Universities without activities in particle, astroparticle or nuclear physics may nominate one representative. Members that have retired from the active professional life or have acquired the status of Professor emeritus may be admitted as Honorary Board Members.

CHIPP organisation

The Swiss Institute for Particle Physics (CHIPP) is an association according to Swiss law regrouping all the particle, astroparticle, and nuclear physicists holding a Master in physics and working for a Swiss institution, as well as the Swiss PhD nationals working at CERN.
Wins the CHIPP Prize 2018: Dr. Claudia Tambasco.

Claudia Tambasco mit CHIPP-Preis 2018 ausgezeichnet

Damit Physikerinnen und Physiker am CERN ihre Experimente zum Verständnis der Materie durchführen können, muss der grosse Teilchenbeschleuniger LHC mit höchster Präzision betrieben werden. Diese Präzision gegenwärtig und auch in Zukunft zu gewährleisten – das war das übergeordnete Ziel einer Doktorarbeit, die Claudia Tambasco vor kurzem an der ETH Lausanne (EPFL) abschloss. Für diese Arbeit wurde die Nachwuchsforscherin heute bei einem Festakt in Lausanne mit dem Preis des Schweizer Instituts für Teilchenphysik (Swiss Institute of Particle Physics/CHIPP) ausgezeichnet.
