COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
Since 1991

WORLDWIDE PARTICLE PHYSICS COLLABORATIONS:
ATLAS (CERN), CALICE (ILC), DZero, RD51 (CERN), SiD (ILC)

NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED:
11 faculty, three senior researchers, three postdocs and five graduate students

PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
The UTA high-energy physics group has been at the forefront of Higgs and supersymmetric particle searches and QCD measurements. We have built calorimeters for DZero and ATLAS. Our leadership in grid computing includes establishing a successful exchange program with Fermilab and hosting the ATLAS Southwest Tier 2 computing center. PanDA, the ATLAS distributed computing application software we developed, is being adopted by many experiments within and outside the field. Finally, we have leadership roles in new detector development initiatives: digital hadron calorimetry using gas electron multipliers for future lepton colliders and a picosecond timing detector for the ATLAS forward proton detector upgrade.

WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT UTA APART?
We are the world leader in proton detectors and gap calorimeters, in distributed computing software and facilities and in calorimeter technology for future lepton colliders. We have active ongoing Higgs and SUSY analyses. We enjoy strong support for HEP research at our university.
