High Energy Experimental Physics


Our research group explores the fundamental particles that make up matter and the fundamental forces that act on the particles. The group's efforts are currently focused on measurement of weak decays of the charm and beauty quarks. These experiments may provide clues to why we live in a universe dominated by matter rather than antimatter. We are also working on ways of detecting the higgs boson, the putative source of all mass, through its decays in exotic ways.
