The IGFAE

The Galician Institute of High Energy Physics (Instituto Galego de Física de Altas Enerxías IGFAE) is a joint research center of University of Santiago de Compostela and Xunta de Galicia (the Galician Autonomous Government), that it was officially created on July 2, 1999.

Background

Research Areas

a1
THE STANDARD MODEL
TO THE LIMITS

The Standard Model (SM) is our best construction of the microscopic reality at the most fundamental level. The degree of consistency with experiment is astonishingly good.

Our Institute has played a fundamental role in this broad field of research.

a2
COSMIC PARTICLES AND
FUNDAMENTAL PHYSICS

Astroparticle Physics, as well as the connections between Particle Physics and Cosmology, are experiencing a new golden age.

Our Institute has been one of the pioneers in the Pierre Auger Observatory, a giant air shower array in Argentina.

a3
NUCLEAR PHYSICS FROM THE LAB TO IMPROVE PEOPLES HEALTH

The participation of IGFAE in new international facilities such as FAIR offers unprecedented opportunities to contribute to understanding the nature of the strong interaction in the non-perturbative regime, the structure of the nuclear many-body systems and their astrophysical implications.
