ASTROPARTICLES & MULTI-MESSENGERS
The activities of the team concern the properties of neutrinos, and gravitational waves. Our participations in these projects range from instrumentation to analysis of data acquired by the experiments, as well as simulations. “
The laboratory is involved in the KM3NeT (KiloMeter Cube Neutrino Telescope) collaboration which is currently building a neutrino detection array on the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea.
The detection of gravitational waves
The LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna) project is an international space mission whose objective is the detection of gravitational waves emitted by the most violent events in the Universe such as the coalescence of supermassive black holes and other compact stars.
Neutrino oscillation at very short distance
The neutrino is the most abundant massive particle in the universe but it is also the one that interacts the least. As a result, and despite enormous experimental progress, it is one of the most enigmatic ingredients of the standard model of particle physics.
Double neutrino-free beta disintegration The NEMO3 experience
The NEMO3 experiment, installed at the Laboratoire Souterrain de Modane (LSM), aims to observe double beta decay without neutrino emission at a sensitivity level of 1024-25 years.
