group consists of experimental physicists: Professors Imlay,
Metcalf, McNeil, Svoboda, and Matthews; two theoreticians: Professors
Chan and Haymaker; several postdoctoral associates; and a number of technicians,
graduate students, and undergraduate student workers.
group has concentrated on colliding beam physics, neutrino physics
and cosmic ray physics. Present on-going experiments include the
L3 experiment at LEP, the LSND neutrino experiment at Los Alamos and Super-Kamiokande(Super-K)
in Japan. The group is also involved in preparation for future
experiments: Mini-BooNE(Booster Neutrino Experiment) at Fermilab, KamLaND
in Japan and the AUGER project.
On the theoretical
side, work is in progress to construct dynamical models for quark systems
and to apply them to the phenomenology of elementary particles. Further,
the underlying symmetries are being investigated to better understand the
symmetry breaking that gives rise to observed phenomena. Gauge theories,
quantum chromodynamics(QCD), effective action expansions, and lattice gauge
theories are all under investigation.
