Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Medical Imaging

Our division includes the following research groups.

Particle Physics and Astrophysics

Our experimental research covers studies of high-energy proton-proton collisions at the LHC and studies of the high-energy universe with X-rays, gamma radiation and cosmic rays with satellite and balloon-borne instrumentation. On the theory side we focus on physics beyond the standard model, including the origin of neutrino masses and dark matter. We are a part of the Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics and the KTH Space Center.

Physics of Medical Imaging

We invent and construct prototypes for new medical imaging systems. We test proof-of-principle prototypes in our lab and oversee the clinical evaluation of the new devices. To evaluate new ideas we use computer simulations and analytical calculations. The new systems typically consist of photon counting Applications Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), semiconductor detectors and digital data acquisition systems.
