Institute of Quantum Physics and Engineering Technologies of Georgian Technical University is an official member and has strong ties with the world's leading international collaborations (experiments) such as
• CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid)
• COMET (Coherent Muon to Electron Transition)
• DUNE (Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment)

CMS Experiment, CERN-LHC The GTU team is working effectively on sub-detectors of the CMS experiment, such as the Resistive Plate Chamber (RPC) and Hadron Calorimeter (HCAL) detectors. As part of the HL-LHC modernization program, CMS Collaboration is building a unique and universal high granularity calorimeter HGCAL (High Granularity Calorimeter) to replace the existing endcap calorimeter. In these sub-detectors, GTU scientists are actively involved in key tasks. We are also actively engaged in the optimization and analysis of the main CMSSW software platform and the GEANT4 geometric analysis of CMS experiment.

COMET Experiment, KEK, J-PRC At present, the only experimentally proven process in which the lepton flavor is violated is the so-called neutrino oscillations. However, charged lepton flavor violation (CLFV) has not been observed to date. Any manifestation of CLFV indicates the existence of a new physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). The COMET experiment is a new generation experiment designed to achieve a sensitivity of 10-15-10-17 for the µ → e conversion, which is 10,000 times better than the best result to date (Br < 10-13). Such a result can only be achieved using a high-intensity muon beam (1011) and precision detectors of a new generation. In the COMET experiment, our team performs tasks on all detector systems such as Straw track detectors, electromagnetic calorimeters, and the cosmic ray veto system. We also perform simulations to optimize detectors.

DUNE Experiment, Fermilab FERMILAB (Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory), America's largest nuclear and elementary particle center, is preparing for the world's largest (both in terms of scope and scientific content) Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), which has to answer many important questions, including one of the most important fundamental question for understanding our universe, namely: Why is there an asymmetry between matter and antimatter in our universe? Whereas, during the Big Bang, matter-antimatter was created equally, and now dominates matter. The study of neutrino-antineutrino oscillations gives us great prospects in the study of this asymmetry. It should be noted that the experiment will observe not only the oscillation of neutrinos, but also the oscillation of antineutrinos, which is very important.

GTU is an active member of the LBNF / DUNE experiment, and has responsibilities for the collaboration. The team is actively working on the nearest part (ND) of the experiment, both in Straw track detectors and in creating an electromagnetic calorimeter. We also perform certain modeling tasks.
