COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
MAJOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO FERMILAB EXPERIMENTS:
The Harvard group at CDF concentrates on top quark physics, which are the different measurements of top quark pair production cross sections and their properties. Harvard has also invested a lot of effort and gained expertise in hardware development and detector operations at CDF.
PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
Harvard has a broad particle physics program, including physics analyses at CDF, different hardware and software projects on the ATLAS MUON spectrometer, the ATLAS trigger for the Large Hadron Collider upgrade, jet-energy scale corrections at ATLAS and getting ready for LHC data, in particular to perform analyses from first collisions in the following areas: top physics, Higgs and supersymmetry searches and W-and Z-related measurements.
WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT HARVARD APART?
Our group focuses on a wide variety of experimental research topics, and brings a range of expertise. Harvard University also has a strong group of theorists and phenomenologists, who work in close collaboration with us. We have a very strong electronics group, including technicians and engineers, who have taken a major part in designing and constructing infrastructure for particle experiments.
