Oregon’s high energy physicists investigate immense data sets with cutting edge computational techniques running on world-wide networks of grid-computing resources.
Our group observed the first gravitational wave September 14, 2015 at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), and we’ve been making exciting discoveries ever since.
We develop pioneering ideas in particle physics, quantum field theory, particle cosmology, and other uncharted physics territories.
We’re working with scientists from across the globe to develop a new electron-positron collider.
The Center for High Energy Physics hunts for new physics with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Switzerland.
