The Particle Physics Research Center

Led by Nobel Laureate Prof. Samuel C.C. Ting, IAT has formed its particle physics research team. Based on the global data center for the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) experiment on the International Space Station (ISS), IAT’s Particle Physics Research Center devotes to the experimental searches for dark matter, antimatter and the origins of cosmic elements as well as numerical modeling of cosmic radiation in outer space, forecasting software of the radiation environment in solar system, precision calculation of radiation dose and nuclear cross sections, tests of silicon detectors, etc.
