COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
MAJOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO FERMILAB EXPERIMENTS:
Founding member of U.S. CMS, contributing to Endcap Muons and Forward Pixels work. UC Davis is one of the largest U.S. university groups on CDF and has contributed to the CDF Run 2 silicon, XFT L2 trigger and top quark and tau lepton-related new particle searches. On DZero, the Davis group proposed the first tracking trigger, and designed and developed a front-end chip for it.
PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
Studying the top quark and looking for new particles and phenomena, including the Higgs boson, supersymmetric particles and neutrino CP violation at the highest-energy and intensity accelerators in the world.
WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, DAVIS APART?
Our group has a rich history of particle physics research during the last 40 years. We have added a number of new faculty in the past decade and have a vibrant program spanning collider, neutrino and dark matter physics.
