Located on the International Space Station and controlled from CERN in Switzerland, the AMS is used in an MIT-led experiment to study antimatter, dark matter, and cosmic rays.

Nuclear Interaction Group

Researchers with NIG work at MIT, Jefferson Lab, and Mainz University in Germany to understand the fundamental nature of nuclear interactions and the dynamical structure of nucleons and nuclei. 

Particle Physics Collaboration

In pursuit of the completion of the Standard Model of particle physics, this group analyzes data from high-energy proton-proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.
