Axions: From Heaven to Earth
01/09/2017 - 31/08/2022

Axions are hypothetical particles whose existence would solve two major problems: the strong P, T problem (a major blemish on the standard model); and the dark matter problem. It is a most important goal to either observe or rule out the existence of a cosmic axion background....

Understanding the speed limits of magnetism
01/02/2017 - 31/01/2022

While the origin of magnetic order in condensed matter is in the exchange and spin-orbit interactions, with time scales in the subpicosecond ranges, it has been long believed that magnetism could only be manipulated at nanosecond rates, exploiting dipolar interactions with ext...

NEw WindowS on the universe and technological advancements from trilateral EU-US-Japan collaboration
01/07/2017 - 30/06/2021

NEWS promotes the collaboration between European, US and Japanese research institutions in some key areas of fundamental physics. LIGO and Virgo collaborations have built the largest gravitational wave observatories and exploit the propagation of light and spacetime to detect ...

Photonic Quantum Information
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2020

Svensk sammanfattning

Kvantfysiken beskriver hur materiens minsta byggstenar uppför sig, här gäller inte samma klassiska fysiska lagar som vi är vana vid. I projektet ”Photonic Quantum Information” vill forskarna utveckla ...

Nanocalorimetry: new opportunities in thermodynamic characterization
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Specific heat measurements provide the fundamental thermodynamic signatures that are needed to understand and interpret novel material properties. We will apply our unique phase-stabilized differential ac-nanocalorimeter to perform measurements with an unprecedented combinatio...

Probing the Structure and Dynamics of Water in its Various States
01/09/2015 - 31/08/2020
We propose to address some of the most important outstanding questions for a microscopic understanding of water: What is the structure and dynamics of the hydrogen-bonding network that give rise to all the unique properties of water? How is the structure and dynamics affecte...

Discovering Dark Matter Particles in the Laboratory
01/01/2015 - 31/12/2019
Den mörka materian i universum upptäcktes redan på 1930-talet av den schweiziske astronomen Fritz Zwicky. Idag står det utom rimligt tvivel att den mörka materian bör bestå av en ny sorts partikel som vi ännu inte har identifierat. Det e...

Search for new heavy stable particles at the LHC
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

It is proposed that searches be made at the upgraded ATLAS experiment during run 2 of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for a class of hitherto unobserved particles: stable, massive particles (SMPs). The possible signature of a long-lived particle is an important observable...

ATLAS upgrades for the high-luminosity LHC
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN (LHC) is the largest and most powerful collider in the world. From 2010-2013 the LHC delivered large volumes of proton-proton and heavy ion collisions to the four experiments around its perimeter. Hundreds of significant physics results have a...

Strongly Correlated and Topological Electron Systems - from microscopic descriptions to effective theories
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

Background: Up until the early 1980-ies, phases of matter were classified according to the pattern of symmetry breaking. In a crystal the full translational symmetry is broken to a discrete subgroup, and in a magnet the rotational symmetry is broken to a single ro...
