Mike Matulik, group leader of the Infrastructure Group in PPD’s Electrical Engineering Department, wrote this week’s column. Mike Cherry (left) and Mike Matulik with the robotic system, R2-DO. Colliding beam detectors like CDF and DZero are most cost efficient when they’re running and taking data 24 hours a day. Yet these complex devices are prone to occasional component failures. Minimizing these interruptions is a major responsibility of support groups such as the DZero Electrical Support Group in the Particle Physics…
