PARTICLE PHYSICS COLLABORATIONS:
Currently DZero, ATLAS, SuperK and T2K
EXPERIMENTS AT FERMILAB:
DZero. Past experiments include: CZero internal target diffractive scattering; 15-foot and 30-inch bubble chambers with neutrino and hadron beams; E288, E494 and E605 studying dihadrons and dimuons.
SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS AT FERMILAB:
Three students, two postdocs and frequent travellers.
COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
MAJOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO FERMILAB EXPERIMENTS:
First ring imaging Cerenkov detector (E605), discovery of the Upsilon (E288); central drift chamber, calorimeter electronics, layer 0 silicon detector and silicon track trigger (DZero). Also provided a DZero spokesperson; physics convener; physics group leaders for electroweak, b-physics, new phenomena and QCD groups. Leading roles in top quark discovery, W boson mass and Bs mixing measurements.
PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
Constraining the Standard Model through measurements of the W boson mass and direct searches for the Higgs boson. Also, studying the symmetries and new states in hadrons containing bottom quarks.
WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT CAMBRIDGE APART?
A broad program touching most aspects of physics at the energy frontier as well as neutrino oscillations and proton decay.
