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.

Quantum-aided frequency measurements

Accurate measurements of the frequencies of weak electric or magnetic fields are important in many applications. Researchers at ETH Zurich have now developed a procedure whereby a quantum sensor measures the frequency of an oscillating magnetic field with unprecedented accuracy. Read more

One laser is enough

Gases in the environment can be spectroscopically probed fast and precisely using so-called dual frequency combs. Researchers at ETH have now developed a method by which such frequency combs can be created much more simply and cheaply than before. Read more

Pauli Lectures take a look under the microscope

Using a trick with the optical resolution limit, Stefan W. Hell managed to break through the diffraction barrier in light microscopy, making it possible to obtain high-resolution images of the innermost workings of life. The chemistry Nobel laureate will now deliver this year’s Pauli Lectures at ETH Zurich. Read more
