Academia Sinica at CDF

CDF is one of two colliding experiments at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, which houses the Tevatron collider. This collider machine is currently the most energetic operating accelerator in the world. It collides proton and anti-proton beams at the center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV. The main goals of the experimental program of the Tevatron is to:
  • Perform precision tests on the Standard Model (SM)
  • Search for New Physics beyond the SM
Academia Sinica is one of the collaborator of the CDF experiment. It has participated actively in many aspects of the experiment. These include :
  • Physics analyses in Top-Physics, New Phenomena, Higgs and B-Physics
  • Building the optical readout of the silicon vertex detector
  • Implementing and operation of the CDF computing farm
