WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY APART?
We are unique in participating in three of the four major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (CMS, ATLAS and ALICE). Also, our Center of Cosmology and Astro-Particle Physics (CCAPP) allows for interaction between the increasingly related fields of particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology.
