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...

Studies of atomic, molecular and cluster ions and their interactions
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

With this project I aim at: i, Studies of merged-beam reactions with atomic and molecular cat- and anions in a cold and almost collision-free environment; ii, Atomic lifetime measurements and molecular- and cluster cooling experiments with milliseconds to the hours time scales...

Study of extraterrestrial neutrinos with IceCube
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

After more than 20 years of efforts, with large Swedish contributions, the IceCube neutrino observatory recently made a breakthrough with the discovery of a high energy (~100 TeV - ~1PeV) astrophysical neutrino flux. This is a new form of diffuse radiation which can reach us f...

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...

Shedding light on the diffuse interstellar bands with superfluid helium nanodroplets
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2019

The goal of this project is to perform accurate spectrum measurements of possible molecular carriers of the diffuse interstellar bands. The diffuse interstellar bands are a series of more than 400 absorption features detected in the...

Tilted Weyl Fermions
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

After eluding discovery for 85 years since their theoretical prediction, Weyl fermions—a fundamentally new type of massless particles—were finally observed in 2015, and have by...

Topological phases and their transitions
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

The last decade has seen the advance of topological phases of matter, such as topological insulators and topological superconductors. Topological phases of matter are characterized by topological invariants, describing the non-local properties of such phases. For systems of no...

Simple Models for friction in electrolyte systems
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

This project will address friction in electrolyte systems: aqueous electrolyte (salt) solutions and ionic liquids (liquid electrolytes). These systems are becoming a new frontier in friction research and are very promising for low-friction applications, as demonstrated for ins...

Neutrino Astronomy with IceCube
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

The discovery in 2013 of high energy neutrinos from space by the IceCube experiment at the South Pole has been a breakthrough for astroparticle physics. Their existence at detectable levels was predicted but never certain. Now the most pressing question is to identify the so...

Real-time studies of ultrafast catalytic surface reactions
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

Chemical reactions at surface form the basis for heterogeneous catalysis. A detailed understanding of the microscopic steps governing surface reactions is a long-standing goal in chemical physics. Despite this, the direct observation of short-lived intermediates and transition...
