  • Description: Particle physicists attempt to comprehend Nature by cracking subatomic matter to see what fundamental elements lie hidden within. In the process, they routinely create, observe, and measure particles whose fleeting existence defies common intuition. Specialized instrumentation and techniques evolved over many decades augment our senses as we probe the innermost secrets of nature. These technologies comprise the experimentalist's repertoire of tools and are used in one form or another, in virtually all current particle experiments. Here we will open the toolbox and explore its contents.

    Detailed Information
    All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
