Discoveries in high energy physics range from finding new particles, such as the Higgs boson, to elucidating the properties of elusive particles such as neutrinos. The ongoing search for dark matter and the use of cosmology to study fundamental physics aims to revolutionize our current understanding of the evolution and structure of the Universe. The largest and most complex experiments in the world are carried out in the domain of high energy physics. For this reason, the challenges facing the field are often too vast for one laboratory or institution to tackle independently.
The High Energy Physics Division studies the ultimate nature of matter, space, and time.
