The IIT High Energy Physics group currently includes seven faculty, three postdocs, six graduate students, and a number of part-time undergraduates. High Energy Physics is the study of matter at its most fundamental level. We know that the particles that make up the nuclei of atoms are themselves composed of quarks. Our research has focused on properties of neutrinos and strange (s), charm (c), and beauty (b) quarks, which we study in experiments at the nearby Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), located 40 miles west of IIT, as well as other venues around the world. Experiments in which we currently participate include the Daya Bay, Double Chooz, and MINOS neutrino experiments and the MICE muon cooling experiment, one aspect of our work on research and development for a possible Neutrino Factory and Muon Collider for the longer-term future.
