Particle Physics

Particle Physics at UNM includes detailed studies of the Standard Model (the 4% of the universe that we partially understand) and the search for physics Beyond the Standard Model (the 96% of the universe that we would like to understand).

Our programs include: a) experiments in Collider Physics, laboratory searches for Dark Matter, searches for Rare Decays and the development of new Instrumentation essential for the next generation of these experiments, and b) theory/phenomenological studies of Neutrino physics, Dark Matter, and Cosmology/Inflation.

Virtually all of our programs include collaborative work at nearby Los Alamos National Laboratory.
