a dedicated heavy ion experiment at the LHC collider at CERN.
The goal of the experiment is to
study strongly interacting matter at extreme energy densities. Theory
predicts that, at sufficiently high densities, there will be a
transition from hadronic matter to a plasma of deconfined quarks and
a transition which in the early universe took place about 100
micro-seconds after the Big Bang.
The study of nuclear collisions at high energies utilizes methods and
concepts from both nuclear
and high energy physics constituting a new and interdisciplinary
approach in investigating
matter and its interactions.
experiment at the proton-proton collider LHC at
CERN. It concentrates on searches of the
Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model (SM), along with other
tests of physics beyond the SM. Lund group is involved in the construction
of the Transition Radiation Tracker for the ATLAS detector,
physics simulation and software development.
- was an
experiment at the electron-positron collider LEP at CERN. In 1990-1995 the experiment
was studying Z boson decays for precision SM and Quantum
Chromodynamics (QCD) tests. From 1995 and
until 2000, the experiment was working at higher energies, registering
W boson events and
searching for Higgs and supersymmetry particles. The Lund
group was involved in the Small Angle Tile Calorimeter and the
Very Small Angle Tagger, in searches for
charginos and gravitons, and in studies related to QCD.
- was an experiment at the electron-proton collider
HERA at DESY. The experiment
started taking data in 1992 and ended in 2007.
Among the physics tasks are measurements of the proton and
photon substructures, QCD analyses, tests of the SM
and searches for new phenomena. The Lund group is engaged in data
analysis, has contributed to the construction of
the forward muon system and the muon trigger of H1, and
also has been responsible for the development of a complete
radiation monitor system within the vertex silicon detector.
experiment at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC) at
Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA. The Lund group has been
involved in the construction of the so-called Pad Chambers, large multi-wire proportional detectors,
essential for the charged particle tracking. The first data were taken during the summer of 2000.
RHIC has since delivered gold-gold, gold-deuteron and proton-proton collisions at various beam energies.

projects developing Grid solutions and enabling facilities for wide area computing and
data handling. The aim is to provide the software and infrastructure for
interdisciplinary usage of Grid-like computer
structures, with the main emphasis at High Energy Physics
