Project Description

In roughly a third of all LHC collisions, one or both of the colliding protons remains intact, a process which is surprisingly poorly understood. This project will involve the study of such events using samples collected using `Roman pot’ insertions to the beampipe approximately 200m from the ATLAS interaction point. It will include a contribution to the operation and optimisation of the Roman pot detectors as well as the analysis of the data collected. Travel to CERN will be required, with the possibility of an extended stay in Geneva during the studentship.

This project will take place within the Particle Physics group at the University. For details of the group and to find out more about studying for a PhD in this group, please refer to
