How did the universe come to be?
Are there undiscovered principles of nature?
Why are there so many kinds of particles?
Do all the forces become one?
STAR at RHIC which is used to study the quark gluon plasma. We are working on a time of flight system, which is studying the quark gluon plasma.
The DZero Experiment at Fermilab. The experiment which discovered the top quark continues to make important contributions to particle physics.
The CMS experiment at the US/LHC, the next generation particle physics experiment. We have designed and built a variant of electronics boards for the real time analysis of data.
The CLAS experiment at Jefferson Lab.
