NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED IN IIFC-νP:
13 faculty and about 20 students

PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
Participating institutions in IIFC-νP collaborate on MIPP, MINOS+, NOvA and LBNE. The Indian institutions expect to play a significant role in future Fermilab Intensity Frontier and Project X programs.

WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT IIFC-νP AND UNIVERSITY OF DELHI APART?
The IIFC-νP is one of the major international collaborators on the neutrino physics experiments at Fermilab, and the University of Delhi leads the IIFC-νP program. The University of Delhi has one of the oldest particle physics groups in India and is involved in both theory and experiment. DU faculty have worked on emulsions, films exposed at bubble chambers, fixed-target experiments, the Tevatron, the LHC, atmospheric neutrino experiments and long-baseline neutrino experiments.
