Hi, I'm about to finish my degree on Physics (this will be my last year). I have plans to do a PhD with a professor who works too at the LHCb experiment (CP violation), so I'd research on this topics. But I have doubts on the specifical work of an experimental particle physicist... only analyze data? Maybe I'm little lost on this issues, but it's the feeling that causes me. For example: if you're researching on superconductivity you prepare the samples, control and keep and eye on the experiment, you take data, analyze it... you do many things. But in the sector of particle physics you only receive data and analyze it... I'm right? In a first look, although you work on topics that you're interested, this seems a little boring.
