Sri Lanka

Particle physicists from Sri Lanka, who had earlier been working in research laboratories in the US, have contacted CERN to explore possibilities for participating in CERN’s physics programme.

Following these contacts, some students from the University of Ruhuna have participated in the CERN Summer Student Programme. One has gone on to graduate studies and has completed her PhD working on the RPC system of the CMS experiment together with physicists from the Tata Institute in India.

The collaboration between Sri Lanka and CERN is carried out under the Expression of Interest signed between the CMS Collaboration and the University of Ruhuna in 2006.
