The University of Milan is hosting the third Innovative Training Network (ITN) ColOpt event, from 9th to 13th July 2018, in the Sala Napoleonica of via S. Antonio 12
The ATLAS Collaboration at CERN has announced the observation of Higgs bosons produced together with a top-quark pair. Observing this extremely rare process is a significant milestone for the field of High-Energy Physics. It allows physicists to test critical parameters of the Higgs mechanism in the Standard Model of particle physics.
The international workshop on electronic excitations, organized by the European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility (ETSF) of which UNIMI is a core node, takes place from September 10 to 14, 2018.
Nature Astronomy publishes a paper by a team - including Claudio Grillo, physicist at the University of Milan - announcing the discovery of the hot blue star “Icarus”, 9 billion light years away.
The text adopted by the Department on the new Campus project is available (in Italian).
Performed with success the test of an innovative superconducting coil in MgB2, designed, built and tested by the Superconducting Magnet Group at LASA, in the framework for developing new concepts of magnets for particle accelerators.
The Workshop takes place in Bormio, Italy, from 19 to 24 February 2018. The meeting is jointly organized by Università degli Studi di Milano and Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (sez. Milano), with the local organizers Angela Bracco, Franco Camera, Gianluca Colò and Silvia Leoni.
At the beginning of January, tidying up a bookcase in the Department of Physics, one of our students found out some documents regarding outstanding scientists of the past. This piece of news aroused the curiosity of a journalist and a piece was published on Corriere della Sera last January 19.
At the end of 2017, the Darklight project led by Luigi Guzzo, Professor of Cosmology in this Department, was officially concluded. The project has been supported by a 1.7 million euro Advanced Research Grant awarded in 2012 by the European Research Council (ERC).
A simulation of a one-dimensional gas of bosons interacting by soft repulsive forces unveils a quantum phase transition triggered by cluster formation.
