RTU Center of High Energy Physics and Accelerator Technologies takes part in many scientific collaboration projects, many of them based at CERN sites. CERN National Contact Point in Latvia and CERN Baltic Group attract relevant local scientific institutions and industries with high added value to contribute to new scientific discoveries.
RTU Center of High Energy Physics and Accelerator Technologies with its partners have supported the following collaborative research projects.
A significant part of the research is on the top quark, the heaviest of all known particles. Its decay triggers many interesting physics processes.
Expanding our understanding of the fundamental laws of nature requires the energy frontier to be pushed further. Reaching this goal within the 21st century in an efficient and reliable way calls for a larger circular collider.
Scientists believe there’s more to discover in the field of nuclear medicine, but the challenges involved in securing a steady supply of radioactive isotopes that are of potential medical interest has been a restraining factor on research.
