Grupo de Altas Energías de la UCM, GAE-UCM


Welcome to the High Energy Physics Group (GAE-UCM), part of the Institute of Particle Physics and the Cosmos, IPARCOS, at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid



The Grupo de Altas Energías pioneered the Spanish research activity in Astroparticle Physics, contributing to the construction and exploitation of the HEGRA experiment at the Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory, La Palma, Spain, since 1985.

The group is currently involved in the MAGIC and CTA collaborations, which run vital instruments in the Very High Energy (VHE) Gamma Ray astronomy field. We are also interested in High Energy Gamma-Ray Satellites: Fermi and eAstrogam. Gamma-Ray Astrophysics is one of the pillars of Astroparticle Physics.

The group belongs to the Department of Quantum and Thermal Physics and Electronics in the Faculty of Physics.

We are always interested in talent and welcome collaborations and guest visits.
