The Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP) is the bottom-up organisation of Swiss particle and astroparticle physics researchers in Switzerland as a legal entity of Swiss law. CHIPP is tasked with coordinating the national efforts in the realm of particle and astroparticle physics.
This is achieved by keeping a continuous dialogue between the particle physicists of different cantonal universities and federal institutes. CHIPP is recognized as the representative of Swiss particle physics both nationally and internationally. It awards yearly a Prize to a PhD student, supports workshops and conferences, organises PhD schools, and develops outreach projects.

Antihydrogen: check! GBAR completes key step in antimatter research
Positrons: in their cloud. Antiprotons: generated. Deceleration: achieved. Mixing: check! The antimatter experiment GBAR has just published a paper in which it reports on their first detected antihydrogen atoms. This is a key step towards the ultimate goal of antimatter research: finding a reason for the asymmetry between matter and antimatter.Immagine: Sarah Geffroy

New flavour for Basel
Today we would like you to meet one of the University of Basel’s latest additions in the sciences: tenure-track Assistant Professor Admir Greljo. He joined the university’s physics department in spring and has brought lots of plans and ideas in his luggage. Find out how a childhood in a war influenced his career and how he hopes to solve the mystery of the different flavours in particle physics …Immagine: Admir Greljo
Order through kaons
The inventory of Swiss particle physics has just opened a new register for a new kind of research: thanks to EPFL assistant professor Radoslav Marchevski, it can add kaon physics to its list. The Bulgarian scientist, who did his undergraduate studies in Sofia, Bulgaria and his graduate studies in Mainz, Germany, joined the ranks of Swiss academia at the beginning of the year and brought his specialty particle with him.Immagine: Radoslav Marchevski
