"Physics at DZERO: Exploring the Microscopic Structure of the Universe"
ABSTRACT:
To explore the microscopic structure of the universe very energetic beams of submicroscopic particles and complicated detectors, such as the DZERO detector, are required. These huge machines, built by graduates students, physicists, and engineers, have the potential to explain the origins of mass and to explore extra spatial dimensions. The technology behind these investigations and their current state will be described. Prof. Blazey serves as spokesman for the D-Zero Collaboration at Fermilab and director of NICADD, the Northern Illinois Center for Accelerator and Detector Development.
