Institute of High Energy Physics (IFAE)
The Institute of High Energy Physics (IFAE) was founded in 1991 by a consortium of the Government of Catalonia (Generalitat de Catalunya) and the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). IFAE has two main divisions, experimental and theory, which develop frontier research in Fundamental Physics, and a third division developing Applied Physics. The Institute is placed in the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) Campus and it is a member of the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST). IFAE is involved in different outreach activities, as well as promotes initiatives such as the education web app “Gamma Ray Hunters”. IFAE is involved in international experiments like the ATLAS project at the LHC, the T2K neutrino experiment in Japan, the MAGIC telescopes in La Palma and the Dark Energy Survey project in Chile, among others. IFAE also work at the cutting edge of detector technology developing new instrumentation like telescope cameras and detectors for medical imaging.
