LAPTh, an overview

LAPTh is a mixed research unit (UMR 5108) of the CNRS lapth-lapp(within the Institute of Physics, INP) and the Université de Savoie. It is  located in Annecy-le-Vieux, 5km from the centre of Annecy and about 40km from CERN and Geneva.  The activities of LAPTh are centred around three main areas of research:

  • phenomenology of particle physics,
  • astroparticles and cosmology,
  • mathematical physics in particular field and string theory and  aspects of symmetry.

Fête de la Science 2014

FETE DE LA SCIENCE 2014

Samedi 11 et dimanche 12 octobre 2014, à l'occasion de la fête de la science, le LAPP et le LAPTh organisent leurs traditionnelles journées portes ouvertes. Durant ces deux jours, le laboratoire ouvrira ses portes aux visiteurs entre 10h et 18h.

Cette année nos portes ouvertes seront orientées essentiellement vers une découverte des expériences et des activités du laboratoire. Sur les différents stands, les visiteurs pourront ainsi dialoguer avec les physiciens, ingénieurs et techniciens du laboratoire sur des sujets variés tels que la recherche de nouvelles particules au LHC, l'anti-matière, les rayons cosmiques, l'électronique, l'informatique et la mécanique dans les expériences, les neutrinos, les ondes gravitationnelles ou la recherche de la matière noire.

Matière noire à l'honneur

A écouter francecultureEmission « La Marche des Sciences » sur France Culture
En seconde partie d'émission, en partenariat avec le magazine Pour la Science, regard porté sur l'article de Richard Taillet, chercheur en astrophysique, qui s'intéresse aux "Chasseurs souterrains de matière noire", les dispositifs humains et technologiques mis en place, aujourd'hui, sous terre pour beaucoup, dans l'espoir de trouver ce qui compose la fameuse matière noire de l'univers. A partir de 45 min : émission ici

A lire "Les chasseurs souterrains de matière noire" de Richard Taillet dans "Pour la Science"

Les physiciens recherchent les particules de matière noire à l'aide d'instruments installés dans d'anciennes mines. La sensibilité des détecteurs augmente et l'étau se resserre autour de cette composante hypothétique de l'Univers....

   

GraSPA 2014

graspa2014 Summer School in Particle and Astroparticle physics of Annecy-le-Vieux, 21-25 July 2014

  The school aims at introducing Particle Physics and Astroparticle physics to 4th and advanced 3rd year physics students from anywhere in the world. The most recent research topics and results in these fields will be presented. It consists of 4 days of lectures on LHC Physics, Neutrinos, Heavy Flavours, Astroparticle Physics, Gravitational Waves. Computational tools for these fields will also be introduced during a hands-on session. The students will be immersed in an international research atmosphere, and will be able to spend time and discuss at length with scientists working in the field.

Courses will be in English. No background knowledge on the topics covered beyond a popular science level is assumed. A strong basis in Quantum Mechanics is expected, however.
