Particle physics the energy frontier

Particle Physics - the Energy Frontier

A key equation:

E2 = p2c2 + m2c4

New Physics:

Higgs Bosons

Supersymmetry

String Theory

Hidden Dimensions

Research coverage

Research Coverage

  • There are 60 US universities and national laboratories involved in hadron collider physics research at Fermilab and CERN in four large experiments:

    • DØ*, CDF at Fermilab

    • CMS*, ATLAS at CERN

      • *Notre Dame particle physicists are involved on these.

ND Science Advisory Council , 1 September 2000 R. Ruchti, QuarkNet


Motivation

Motivation

  • Particle physics experiments take a long time to build and operate. Typically 10-15 years.

  • Particle physics experiments are expensive.

  • A great deal of education and outreach activity takes place nationally, but is often incoherent in application.

ND Science Advisory Council , 1 September 2000 R. Ruchti, QuarkNet


Vision

Vision

  • Give teachers a partnership in the research associated with the experiments.

  • Reach into high schools through classroom transfer.

  • Work for geographic and cultural balance.

  • Operate the program for an extended period of time so that it can have impact (>5yr).

    Summary

    Summary

    • It has been an exciting period of growth for QuarkNet nationally and locally.

    • We have worked extensively with 11 teachers and 15 high school students.

    • The program should grow, now that the word is out.

    • We are now in need of sustaining resources to manage the local program properly.

    ND Science Advisory Council , 1 September 2000 R. Ruchti, QuarkNet


    Sustaining the effort

    Sustaining the Effort

    • NSF/DOE Funding

      • QuarkNet out-year funding

      • RET (research experiences for teachers)

      • Experimental construction funds, DØ and CMS
