Welcome to the Institute for Particle Physics

Research

Our main research projects are carried out in large international collaborations and address fundamental questions in particle and astroparticle physics, with significant contributions to experiments at the high energy frontier, the high intensity/high precision frontier, in neutrino physics, searches for Dark Matter, and cosmic ray physics. IPP aims to continue its prominent role in the different research programs. Forefront technologies employed in our experiments require intensive R&D programs, leading to innovative detector concepts and spin-offs (e.g., in medical physics or security).

Education

Members of IPP participate in teaching at all levels at ETH and offer laboratory courses at ETH, PSI, and CERN. We provide a rich program of master and graduate level courses, in collaboration with our ETH colleagues from the Institute of Theoretical Physics, the PSI, and from the University of Zurich. Furthermore, we have initiated a Joint Master program in high energy physics together with colleagues at the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris. Altogether, this guarantees a diverse, internationally attractive and high-quality teaching program in theoretical and experimental particle and astroparticle physics.

Outreach

The members of IPP are strongly committed to outreach activities for the public promotion of particle physics in particular and fundamental research in general.

A lifelong fascination with planets

Watching Star Trek as a child first inspired Judit Szulágyi’s fascination with planets and galaxies. Today Forbes ranks the astrophysicist among Europe’s 30 most influential scientists under the age of 30. Watch as she explains how she uses computer simulations to research the birth of giant planets – and how she decided on this career path in the first place. Read more

Spark Award for fundamental research

ETH Professor Sabine Werner and her team won the Spark Award 2017 yesterday for their groundbreaking new approach to combating viral diseases. If their results can be confirmed, they could lead to the development of better treatments for viral diseases such as herpes. Read more

Consistently among the best

ETH researchers have received eight of the coveted Advanced Grants in the European Research Council's (ERC) latest call for proposals. For several scientists, this is their second such grant. ETH Zurich has been consistently ranked among the most successful institutions since the programme was launched ten years ago. Read more

Start with the users

An app for building managers – or data glasses that help you learn physics concepts? During the first "SPH Innovation Challenge", ETH students spent a week working on their own project ideas. Set up as a pilot station in autumn 2016, the Student Project House on the Hönggerberg campus provided the necessary space and resources. Read more
