COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
WORLDWIDE PARTICLE PHYSICS COLLABORATIONS:
CMS, DZero, Mu2e, STAR (Brookhaven)
NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED:
Six faculty, four postdocs, four grad students
PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
The Rice particle group focuses on two areas—the Energy Frontier and precision measurements in flavor
physics. We have major involvement in CMS in the top physics group and are active in the trigger, muon and pixel groups. We have also been involved in flavor physics though KTeV and the DZero B physics group. We are working on the planned experiment Mu2e, which will search for charged-lepton flavor violation. The heavy-ion group works on the CMS and STAR experiments.
