Especially to the non-DØ people
Xe/CH4 conversion gap
Transition Radiation Detector, ret.
TRD inside CDC
X-ray converter and charge collection chamber
Flash ADC time distribution of TRD response to electrons & pions (CERN test beam). Pion rejection > 50:1
Charge clusters from converted X rays drifted to anode wires
The Scarlet Pimpernel, I failed to find a figure until I collected Paul’s Talk yesterday!!!
In Pluquet’s Thesis on the web the figures do not survive into .pdf.
TRD played a major role in the “weeks of top”
and for my association with it, the LHCC declared me a TRD expert and had me give an internal briefing as a precursor to the discussion of the Atlas TRT.

Searches for new particles predicted by many beyond the SM theories:
Leptoquarks – generations 1 and 2 (lljj, lnjj) and combined 1,2,3 (nnjj)
Susy – squark/gluino in MET+jets, lepton + jets
Wino/Zino trileptons, dileptons
R-parity violating couplings
4th generation b-quark
Large extra dimensions (di-EM, monojets)
Anomalous trilinear couplings
Model independent searches (SLEUTH)
Excellent Run 1 MET resolution key for many searches.

M/M = 0.7%

The decision by the Saclay and IN2P3 groups to participate in DØ for run II appears, in retrospect, to have been the precursor to an explosion of participation from Europe in both CDF and DØ at the Tevatron.
It was of great importance for DØ ( and German, UK, other European participation in the Tevatron program)
It led to great physics.
Nous ne regrettons rien
