High energy physics research in the Department can be divided into several research areas. The groups are collaborating closely with each other and are jointly in charge of the high energy physics undergraduate and graduate teaching in the Department.

  • Cosmology » 
    The research of cosmology is focused on the non-equilibrium field theory and its applications in the early universe, the particle dark matter, extensions of General Relativity theory and on modeling inhomogeneities in cosmology. We also participate in the future EUCLID satellite experiment studying the accelerating expansion of the Universe.
  • Neutrino physics »
    The activity of neutrino physics group is focused on experimental and phenomenological research of neutrino oscillation physics, as well as on cosmic ray physics. We participate in the DUNE, JUNO, WA105 and EMMA experiments.
  • Ultrarelativistic Heavy Ion Collisions »
    The goal of the ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions (URHIC), is to study the properties of hot ordinary matter, so called quark gluon plasma (QGP). We focus on perturbative QCD applications and on modeling URHIC with QCD and relativistic hydrodynamics.

Main collaborators in Finland are Helsinki Institute of Physics (HIP), Department of Physics, University of Helsinki, and Center of Underground Physics in Pyhäsalmi (CUPP, Oulu Southern Institute), University of Oulu.
