ANL-FNAL Collaboration

ANL-UChicago-FNAL Collaboration on Detector R&D

3:00 - 6:00 pm Tuesday, May 15, 2007 followed by Dinner at 6:30 pm
5640 S. Ellis Ave. Univ. of Chicago, HEP Building 3rd Floor Conference Room - Directions

e-mail list

Special Topic: Cosmological Computing (3:00 - 3:30 pm) - Presentation (15') and Discussion (15')
The cosmological computing group at FNAL/UChicago will present their work.
This will help understand possible collaboration opportunities with ANL.

    • CMS, ATLAS, ILC detector R&D:
              group leaders - Harry Weerts, Jim Pilcher, FNAL-CMS person (TBD), and Marcel Demarteau
    • HEP Pixel Detector technology for Photon Science:
              group leaders - Ray Yarema and Patricia Fernandez
    • TES/bolometers for CMB and other applications:
              group leaders - Karen Byrum, Clarence Chang (Steve/John), Dan Bauer
    • SiPM as small, high gain photon collection devices:
              group leaders - Bob Wagner, Erik Ramberg
    • Fast Timing
              group leaders - Henry Frisch, Karen Byrum, Erik Ramberg
    • Cosmological Computing:
              group leaders - Scott Dodelson and Karen Byrum
