Group picture (October 2018)

Plasma Astroparticle Physics is a rapidly growing field of research that connects particle physics, plasma and astrophysics.
It aims to answer questions such as:

  • What is the Universe made of?
  • What is Dark Matter and how can we detect it?
  • What are Cosmic Rays? Where do they come from? What accelerates them? How do they propagate?
  • What can gravitational waves tell us?

As the field of Plasma Astroparticle Physics develops, it opens up new doors in astronomy. Nowadays light or, more generally, electromagnetic waves are not the only messengers from distant objects in the Universe, as we begin to observe very high-energy cosmic rays, neutrinos, or gravitational waves.
