Experimental particle physics

  • flavor physics and the weak interaction physics of heavy quarks and leptons:
    • neutrino oscillations,
    • quark flavor mixing,
    • CP violation in quark and neutrino sectors
    • tau lepton physics
    • tests of quark and lepton universality
  • strong interaction physics of hadrons:
    • spectroscopy and dynamics of light and heavy mesons
  • searches for non-Standard Model physics via rare processes
