WIPAC faculty and students are involved in IceCube, Askaryan Radio Array (ARA), High-Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) experiment, Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), and DM-Ice.
WIPAC addresses contemporary astroparticle physics topics, studying phenomena like neutrinos, cosmic rays, gamma rays, dark matter, and beyond.
In-house engineers and close ties to the UW-Madison Physical Sciences Laboratory (PSL) make WIPAC a place where scientific instrumentation is designed, developed, and tested.
With three of four WIPAC projects located at the geographic South Pole, there are unique challenges to collecting, sorting, and sending data around the world for analysis.
WIPAC faculty collaborate locally and internationally, publishing breakthrough research in the field of astroparticle physics.
