The issue of mass as implemented in our current formulation of the much successful Standard Model of particles leaves many questions unanswered, which is probably the reason why the model has still not gained the status of a full-fledged theory. Deep down, the description appeals to a fundamental concept, that of spontaneous symmetry breaking that requires a particular type of vacuum with an elementary particle, the Higgs boson which has so far been elusive, but not for long.
Dark matter searches through dedicated experiments and theoretical investigations
We aim to develop a neutrino pole within our labex, and re-enforce our teams to face the next neutrino related research both experimental and theoretical.
New physics can be revealed combining signals from different atrophysics experiments. We aim to develop a multi-messenger analysis involving experimentalists and theorists of our laboratories.
