The UCM GroupThe group is an official member of the Pierre Auger Collaboration since March 2004 (MOU signed in November 2003). The Auger group is integrated in the High Energy Physics Group of Universidad Complutense de Madrid UCM based in the Departamento de Fisica Atomica, Molecular y Nuclear of Facultad de Ciencias Fisicas.
The members of this group come from both Astroparticle and Atomic/Molecular Physics fields. In regard with Astroparticle Physics, the activities come back to the late 80's in the HEGRA experiment and later in the GRAAL experiment. During this period, several PhD. thesis have been presented. Funding from the Spanish Ministry of Science and local government of Comunidad de Madrid has allowed us to carry out our activities. See here for a list of grants.
