Experimental Particle Physics Group

In particle physics at Johns Hopkins, experimental research is conducted as part of the CMS Collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Our group contributed to the discovery of the Higgs boson and is now studying its properties. The group is actively involved in searches for new physics, particularly those that involve the decay of a very heavy new particle to energetic Standard Model particles. The group is very active in tracking. There is also significant interaction with our particle theory group. Prior to LHC, members of the group worked with the heavy flavor quarks, tops and bottoms, on the CDF experiment at Fermilab and BABAR experiment at SLAC, and are still members of these legacy collaborations.
