Research at the Department of
Physics at Indiana University
covers the topics of
and accelerator physics.
particle physics program pursues a broad range of research efforts. The
energy frontier is currently being explored in hadron collisions at the
Tevatron (Fermilab) using the
detector, at the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN laboratory in Europe using the
detector, and planning for the future electron-positron
International Linear Collider.
In addition, our group conducts measurements of neutrino mass and mixing using the
detector in Minnesota intercepting a neutrino beam from Fermilab, with future neutrino studies planned using the huge
In addition, our group is the lead institution in the development of the
experiment at Jefferson National Laboratory, which is designed to study exotic states
of hadronic matter. Finally, our group is involved in a number of
astrophysics projects, including
which is a future space-based experiment designed to study the nature of'dark energy', and
which is a long-duration balloon experiment designed to study electron
production in nearby supernovae remnants.
We have a strong
undergraduate program in both Physics and Applied Physics, and a dynamic Ph.D.
graduate program in the fields above.
