"The first runs of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment just finished. The LHC was successful in discovering a particle compatible with the Higgs boson of the Standard Model (SM). However expectations to discover New Physics have not been met so far.In order to establish whether the new resonance is the SM Higgs boson, or not, precise measurements of its properties are mandatory. These requi ...

Hot and dense QCD in the LHC era (HOTLHC)

Start date: 01 Jan 2012, End date: 31 Dec 2017,

QCD, the theory of strong interactions, has been defined as our most perfect physical theory, in part because its compact and apparently simple Lagrangian hides a plethora of emerging phenomena. The aim of the present project is to make the essential contributions to fully exploit the new possibilities of the Large Hadron Collider to characterise unexplored domains of QCD.Three main working plans ...

"We propose to construct and prototype an innovative high-precision time-of-flight system suitable for large areas, up to tens of square metres. The TORCH (Time Of internally Reflected CHerenkov light) detector provides a time-of-flight measurement from the imaging of photons emitted in a 1 cm thick quartz radiator, based on the Cherenkov principle. The photons propagate by total internal reflecti ...

Space Radiation Superconductive Shield (SR2S)

Start date: 01 Jan 2013, End date: 31 Dec 2015,

Long duration permanence in deep space or on the surface of planet not protected by a thick atmosphere and/or magnetosphere represent a challenge which remains, as today, unsolved. Long time exposure to Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCR) and Solar Energetic Particles (SEP) is thought to cause a significant increase in the probability of various type of cancers. Means to adequately shield the astronauts fr ...
