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. 


Higgs Discovered at the LHC?

cms higgsjul04 2012On the 4th of July both of ATLAS and CMS, the two multi-purpose detectors at the LHC have announced that they have established, with a very high degree of confidence, the existence of a resonance at the LHC. This is most probably the long sought after Higgs. The physics of the Higgs is the topic of many researchers at LAPTh (See here a list of publications by LAPTh physicists with Higgs in the title..).

Fawzi Boudjema in the magazine, La Recherche

fawzi recherche2012Fawzi Boudjema is interviewed in a special issue of the magazine La Recherche dated July/August 2012. The special issue is entitled the Physics of the 21st Century. The contribution of our colleague covered supersymmetry and the Higgs in particular in the context of the LHC. This was a well timed interview since the publication of the magazine coincided with the CERN annoucement that a new particle, most probably the missing Higgs, has been discovered.


Tools 2012 in Stockholm

image tools2012The latest session of Tools for the New Physics was held in Stockholm from 18 to 21 June 2012. It was hosted by the Oscar Klein Institute , Alba Nova. The aim of this series of workshops initiated by LAPTh (F. Boudjema)  is to review the main calculational tools for the New Physics.

Pierre Salati in Ciel et Espace magazine

pierre ciel mai2012Pierre Salati is interviewed in the May 2012 issue of the magazine Ciel et Espace. Pierre explains the importance of the different searches for Dark Matter. This topic makes it on the front cover of the magazine under the title: the UNIVERSE, why we should find Dark Matter.


A new ANR project lead by LAPTh is selected

anr logoA 4-year project submitted to the ANR (the French National Agency for Research) has been selected. Intitled DMAstroLHC, the  nature of Dark Matter from astroparticles to the LHC. The funding will allow to strenghten the collaboration between LAPP, LPSC and LAPTh physicists and bring in new blood through the hiring of post-docs.


Associated International Laboratory between France and Russia

drapeau-france-russieThe Franco-Russian LIA, Laboratoire International AssociéTools for Colliders and Astroparticle Physics has been set up. The coordinator is Geneviève Bélanger from LAPTh. The collaborations cover the development of codes and automatic tools for the calculation of observables within the Standard Model as well as for Models of New Physics.


5 PhD Fellowships offered by ENIGMASS

enigmass invest avenirThe  laboratoire d'excellence ENIGMASS is offering up to 5 PhD fellowships for autumn 2012.

Update: The 2012 fellowships have been awarded. Another call will take place in the Autumn of 2012.


Ceremony for the CNRS Medal: James Drummond

labo people013

The CNRS bronze medal award ceremony will be held on Tuesday April 24, 2012 at 15h at LAPTh.

The bronze medal award is in recognition of  a major work by a young researcher, making him a talented specialist in his domain. It is also an encouragement by the CNRS for the researcher to pursue an activity that has proven fruitful and well established.
