Research and innovative teaching: Virtual Reality for Particle Physics

A good way to investigate and understand our universe is to "break it down" into fundamental bricks, by studying the particles produced by collisions in large accelerators and revealed thanks to giant "cameras". To analyze the data of the Belle II experiment, of the SuperKEKB accelerator in Japan, a software based on Virtual Reality (VR) technologies has been developed: it simulates the motion of the particles in the detector, reconstructed in 3D. The use of this technology provides interesting teaching cues because it facilitates the students' approach to particle physics, becoming so a powerful tool of "observation" in the science of the infinitely small.

Antonio Budano

Since 2005, he has been working at the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) where he is responsible for the management of IT services and computational cluster of the INFN division "Roma Tre". During his experience at INFN, he was involved in data acquisition and data transfer systems for the Argo-YBJ experiment, in Tibet, and the KLOE experiment, at the INFN Frascati National Laboratories. He has been also involved in the development of grid and cloud computing architectures and in the study and analysis of new technologies to be applied to the world of nuclear physics.
