Welcome to the Sheffield Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics Group

We have aimed at Sheffield to build a group with expertise that bridges the best in experimental accelerator particle physics with the best activity in the emerging new field of astroparticle physics. Both areas stand now on the cusp of making great discoveries. Discoveries at the very heart of our quest to understand the Universe both at very small scales, the building blocks of matter, and at the very largest, the structure of the cosmos itself. These scales are intimately connected by a common origin, the Big Bang. So welcome to the group, please delve further into the pages here and whether you are an interested observer or a hardened academic we hope you find them useful.
