KU team earns grant to extend leading-edge work at Large Hadron Collider

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Congratulations to the KU particle physicists who recently have earned a three-year, $1.78 million grant from the National Science Foundation to continue their research at the Large Hadron Collider, with Phil Baringer as a principal investigator, along with KU researchers Alice Bean, David Besson and Graham Wilson. The KU team is helping to design, build and improve components for a pixel detector housed within the Compact Muon Solenoid, a 12,500-ton instrument that tracks particle collisions within the Large Hadron Collider.
