NAME:
University of Arizona

HOME TOWN:
Tucson, Ariz.

MASCOT:
Wilbur and Wilma the Wildcat

COLORS:
Red, white and blue

COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
1970s

WORLDWIDE PARTICLE PHYSICS COLLABORATIONS:
ATLAS (CERN), DZero

NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED:
Nine faculty, six postdocs, seven graduate students

PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
Our experimental group is primarily involved in the Energy Frontier (DZero and ATLAS), contributing to detector design and construction (ATLAS forward calorimeter), electronics (Level 1 muon trigger for DZero) and physics analysis (top and Higgs physics at DZero, searches for SUSY, exotic particles and quark compositeness at ATLAS). We are starting an effort at the cosmic frontier with the LSST collaboration.

WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA APART?
The ability to make big contributions to the design, operation and analysis of an experiment with relatively few people.

FUNDING AGENCIES:
DOE
