University of Colorado at Boulder

NAME:
University of Colorado at Boulder

HOME TOWN:
Boulder, Colo.

MASCOT:
Buffaloes

COLORS:
Silver and gold

COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
mid-1970s

WORLDWIDE PARTICLE PHYSICS COLLABORATIONS:
CMS, FOCUS, KTeV, LBNE, MiniBooNE, NA61 (CERN), RD-42 (CERN), SeaQuest, T2K (J-PARC), T992

NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED:
10 faculty, five postdocs, five grad students

PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
We are primarily focused on CMS, RD-42 (diamond detector R&D) and T2K at present, with a continuing effort on MiniBooNE and a growing involvement on LBNE. Two of our theorists collaborate with Fermilab on lattice calculations.

WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT CU APART?
We have one of the larger university-based computing farms in HEP. On the technical side, we have the facilities and technical ability to build large components of experiments (most recently focusing horns for T2K) as well as perform detector R&D.

FUNDING AGENCIES:
DOE
