AoE Project to Study Fundamental Structure of Matter

A team of particle physics researchers, led by Professor Chu Ming Chung of Department of Physics, has been awarded HKD 78 million under the University Grants Committee's (UGC) eighth round Areas of Excellence (AoE) scheme.  The project named "Probing the Fundamental Structure of Matter with High Energy Particle Collisions" will build on the strengths of existing involvement in the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at The European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN), lead in some areas of Higgs particle properties measurement and contribute to the ATLAS detector upgrade. 


The project will also involve in the R&D work of the proposed Circular Electron-Positron Collider (CEPC) in China. The project is at the forefront of particle physics research and will enable Hong Kong to take full advantage of emerging opportunities. It will substantially raise the profile of Hong Kong scientists and their global impact, attract students to STEM subjects, and promote interdisciplinary research in physics, electronics, detector development, computing and data science.
