Advanced instrumentation and data analysis in accelerators


The Insituto de Física Corpuscular, IFIC, is a joint center of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC, and the Universitat de València, UVEG. The IFIC is dedicated to research in nuclear, particle and astroparticle phsyics and their applications to medical physics and other fields in science and technology.

The AITANA – matter & technology – group from IFIC is a multidiscipline team that encompasses experimental particle physics and accelerator physics researchers. We are involved in leading activities at ongoing experiments in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC): the ATLAS experiment and the MoEDAL experiment. In addition, we are also very active in future projects of the so called Higgs/EW/Top-quark factories, as the International Linear Collider (ILC) or the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC). Our group is also invested in the search for the so-called axion particles which are one of the particles candidates to solve the dark matter puzzle. We also play an important role in the R&D programme of detectors for such facilities. Finally, we are also at the spanish and european vanguard of accelerator R&D for collider facilities and medical applications.
In summary, we are a research group with a broad portfolio of expertises in several areas of experimental particle physics: from the creation of technology solutions in the detector and accelerator instrumentation to the development of novel techniques for data analysis and particle physics phenomenology interpretations.

  • ICHEP 2022

    6-13 July. Bologna (Italy). ICHEP is a series of international conferences organized by the C11 commission of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). It has been held every two years for more than 50 years, and is the reference conference of particle physics where most relevant results are presented. At ICHEP, physicists from around the world gather to share the latest advancements in particle physics, astrophysics/cosmology, and accelerator science and discuss plans for major future facilities.

  • 6th Red LHC Workshop

    9-11 May. IFT, Madrid. This is a workshop devoted to promoting the interaction and discussion between theorists and experimentalists, covering topics such as Higgs, top, EFT, LLP, and prospects for LHC Run 3 and HL-LHC.
