T2K presents hint of CP violation by neutrinos
August 4, 2017
The international T2K Collaboration strengthened its previous hint that the symmetry between matter and antimatter may be violated for neutrino oscillation. A preliminary analysis of T2K’s latest data rejects the hypothesis that neutrinos and antineutrinos oscillate with the same probability at 95% confidence (2σ) level
L'Institut de Física d'Altes Energies celebra el seu 25è aniversari
July 10, 2017
IFAE celebrates the 25th anniversary of its foundation. The celebration took place last Friday, July 7, with the participation of the Secretary of State for Research, Development and Innovation, Carmen Vela; the Secretary of Universities and Research of the Generalitat de Catalunya, Arcadi Navarro; the Vice-Rector for Innovation and Strategic Projects at the UAB, Francisco Javier Lafuente; and the president of the Board of Trustees of the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology, Andreu Mas-Colell
Possible hints of New Physics found in a new joint analysis of data from LHCb and other experiments
April 20, 2017
Global analysis of observables related to rare B decays measured in different experiments such as LHCb, Belle and preliminary results from ATLAS and CMS shows a discrepancy with the Standard Model at five standard deviations.
IFAE joins the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST)
January 26, 2017
The Observational Cosmology group at the Institut de Física d'Altes Energies (IFAE) has joined the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) project, together with ICE (IEEC-CSIC), CIEMAT and IFT/UAM, in what is known as the Barcelona-Madrid Group.
New experimental results on the universal lepton flavour observable Q5
December 23, 2016
The results show a deviation with respect to the SM predictions that is not yet statistically significant (2.6 sigma for muons and 1.1 sigma for electrons) but coherent with other measurements of the muonic channel and with other observables pointing to the same type of asymmetry between muons and electrons.
Photon counting CMOS chip developed at IFAE for the ERICA project
September 19, 2016
The project ERICA (Energy Resolving Line Camera) is aimed at developing a new x-ray camera for industrial applications with energy resolution. The project includes the development of a new photon counting CMOS specifically designed for this purpose.
