COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
MAJOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO FERMILAB EXPERIMENTS:
HyperCP data acquisition system; E791, HyperCP and MINOS software management and MuCool Test Area instrumentation. IIT also built and maintained the holographic replay system for E-632, the 15-foot bubble chamber with holography, which searched for tau neutrino appearance from interactions in the bubble chamber that produced tau particles.
PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
Neutrinos, heavy quarks, CP violation and rare decays
WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT IIT APART?
Our proximity to Fermilab allows IIT students and scientists to easily participate in activities and projects centered at either the laboratory or our home campus. Our faculty can maintain a high-duty-factor on-site laboratory presence while meeting our university obligations. Our students can be based at the laboratory while maintaining close contact with their adviser and home institution.
