About the Laboratory
The laboratory of elementary particle physics (LEPP) is a participant of the most advanced «Megascience» experiments in the area of high energy physics, Belle and Belle II (Tsukuba, Japan).
Researchers of LEPP took part in Belle II detector construction and preparation for physics data taking. In collaboration with other russian scientists our team developed, produced, installed and is maintaining up to now the EKLM subsystem of Belle II experiment. EKLM is the outermost detector of the Belle II experiment that is designed for K-long meson and muon identification.
The computing cluster for the distributed (GRID-DIRAC) computations was developed for the Monte Carlo data production and physics data processing. Over the last three years researchers of the lab published more than 60 papers in Q1/Q2 journals and gave more than 22 talks at the international scientific conferences.
In 2018 the first beam collisions happened at the SuperKEKB accelerator with participation of the LEPP researchers.
The Belle II detector successfully started physical data taking in April 2019.
The main LEPP goals:
- formation, support and further development of the scientific schools in HSE at the highest international level in the scientific field of the lab;
- maintenance of existing and formation of new research teams at HSE with involvement of russian and foreign acknowledged scientists in the area of particle physics;
- involvement of undergraduate and graduate students of HSE in the research activities; it will allow them to get the experience of a working in the international experiments and to form a proper academic culture at the beginning of their research career.
