Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP)

CHIPP, the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics, is an association uniting researchers active in particle, astroparticle and nuclear physics in Switzerland. The objectives of CHIPP are to coordinate and strengthen the Swiss participation in international projects and committees, coordinate research and teaching activities in Switzerland, and promote public awareness of the field.

This is achieved by keeping a continuous dialogue between the particle physicists of different cantonal universities and federal institutes. CHIPP is recognized as the representative of Swiss particle physics both nationally and internationally. It awards yearly a Prize to a PhD student, supports workshops and conferences, organises PhD schools, and develops outreach projects.

CHIPP Plenary 2019

CHIPP annual plenary meeting for 2019 will be held in Kandersteg.
At the Physics Institute at the University of Bern, Armin Fehr and his colleagues have built the future 'Inner Tracker' of the ATLAS detector on a 1 to 1 scale. In the tube on the left, the proton-proton collisions take place. The dark red box shows one of the regions where the Optoboards will be located.

Every second fifty terabits of data

From 2026, the performance of the large-scale experiments at the European particle physics laboratory, CERN, in Geneva will be significantly increased. The preliminary work for the upgrade of the large particle accelerator LHC and the associated detectors is currently in full swing. An important contribution is made by the University of Bern, where doctoral student Armin Fehr (26) and his colleagues are working on a component for the ATLAS detector. This component will enable the read-out of the greatly increased data rates from 2026 onwards.

Swiss Physical Society (SPS) Joint Annual Meeting 2019

The next Annual Meeting will take place at the University of Zürich, in the week of 26 - 30 August 2019. The well established tradition of organising the conference every second year jointly with the Austrian Physical Society (ÖPG) will continue. Further partners, e.g. the MaNEP association, will also contribute.

Board meetings

The CHIPP Board meeting is composed by the professors with activities in experimental or theoretical particle, astroparticle and nuclear physics and the heads of the experimental and theoretical particle physics groups at Paul Scherrer Institute. Universities without activities in particle, astroparticle or nuclear physics may nominate one representative. Members that have retired from the active professional life or have acquired the status of Professor emeritus may be admitted as Honorary Board Members.

CHIPP organisation

The Swiss Institute for Particle Physics (CHIPP) is an association according to Swiss law regrouping all the particle, astroparticle, and nuclear physicists holding a Master in physics and working for a Swiss institution, as well as the Swiss PhD nationals working at CERN.
Wins the CHIPP Prize 2018: Dr. Claudia Tambasco.

Claudia Tambasco honoured with CHIPP Prize 2018

In order for physicists at CERN to carry out their experiments for the understanding of matter, the large particle accelerator LHC must be operated with the utmost precision. Ensuring this precision both now and in the future was the overriding goal of a doctoral thesis that Claudia Tambasco recently completed at the EPFL in Lausanne. For this work, the young researcher was today (28.08.2018) awarded the prize of the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP) at a ceremony in Lausanne.
