Experimental High Energy Physics
Our group studies the physics at the 10-18 m scale of the quantum universe. We collaborate with many groups throughout the world on the D0 experiment at the Fermilab 2 TeV Tevatron proton-antiproton collider near Chicago, on the CMS experiment at the 14 TeV CERN LHC collider in Switzerland, and on neutrino mixing experiments in the USA and Europe.
Our technical expertise encompasses silicon charged particle detectors, liquid scintillator calorimeters, and Monte Carlo simulation.
