We engage in activities ranging from physics analysis and contributions to data taking (monitoring and alignment) to detector hardware projects.
Physics topics are addressed in the areas Top Quarks, Higgs, SUSY, QCD, as well as studies for parton density distributions in the proton.
We also work on data quality monitoring, tracker alignment, high level trigger, the CASTOR calorimeter, the beam condition monitoring
as well as research and development for the tracker upgrade.
DESY is also a Tier-2-site and thus directly involved in the LHC-computing for the data processing chain.
A list of physics publications with substantial contributions from DESY is here: Journal Publications and Physics Analysis Summaries

Report to the 83rd Physics Research Committee, DESY Hamburg, March 21, 2017:
LHC (ATLAS, CMS, LHC computing), Speaker: James Robinson (ATLAS) on behalf of DESY ATLAS and CMS groups
LHC upgrades and DAF, Speaker: Guenter Eckerlin (CMS) on behalf of DESY ATLAS and CMS groups
DESY offers diverse opportunities for Diploma, Masters and PhD theses both in physics analysis and in more technical areas.
If you are interested please have a look at our open projects and/or contact our group leaders.
