Particle Physics


This module aims to provide students with the basic principles of radiation-matter interactions, particle detection techniques, and data analysis in the context of experimental particle physics.


Detection methods and techniques in particle physics (6 ECTS)
Radiation-matter interaction, particle detectors, readout systems, and typical experimental setups. Students will also perform laboratory measurements related to ionizing particle detection.
Analysis tools in particle physics (6 ECTS)
General overview of the different aspects and methodology involved in large particle physics experiments: data acquisition, data processing, Monte Carlo simulation (event generation and detector response), data analysis, publication of results.
