  FYST16/FYS246: Modern Subatomic Physics, 7.5p ECTS

Student projects

The project list below may be updated with new projects and ideas from the participants are also welcome, but these should be realistic and possible to finish within the allotted time period! Master program and graduate students should remember that you are not allowed to choose a topic which is close to your field of study! Please choose three topics, order them by preference and hand in the list May 7. The projects will be distributed on the basis of these preferences.

HE-1 The time projection chamber: a sophisticated device for tracking and particle identification.
HE-2 Supression of jets in heavy ion reactions at ALICE: results and interpretations.
HE-3 Recent results from the ALICE experiment.
HE-4 Calorimetric measurements in high-energy experiments.

Nuclear physics
NS-1 AGATA - Advanced GAmma Tracking Array.
