COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
WORLDWIDE PARTICLE PHYSICS COLLABORATIONS:
ATLAS (CERN), CDF, RD42 (CERN), RD50 (CERN), SiD (ILC)
NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED:
Two faculty, one research engineer, one postdoc, four graduate students, one undergraduate
PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
The UNM CDF group has focused its analysis efforts on studies of heavy quark bound states, most recently leading the Σb* discovery and precision characterization efforts and the observation of the Λb*.
Our earlier contributions included pentaquark searches and analyses of the properties of three-jet events. UNM collaborators were among the first on the SVXII project, contributing principally to the design, quality assurance and monitoring of the silicon sensors.
