Research & Teaching

Northeastern University Physics Department provides undergraduate education in physics for the members of the Northeastern student body, graduate education in a number of physics speciThealties, and performs cutting-edge research in a variety of experimental and theoretical disciplines in condensed matter, fundamental particles and fields, biophysics, nanophysics, and complexity. The Experimental Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics group concentrates its efforts on three activities: D-Zero, CMS, and the Pierre Auger Observatory.

Boston University and Brandeis university personnel are involved in the construction and installation of the muon detectors for ATLAS. The muon detector occupies a region the size of a five-story building and will measure the trajectories of muons in a magnetic field with a precision of better than 1/10 of a millimeter. The Boston University group also works on CMS at CERN, D-Zero at Fermilab, and neutrino physics at Super-Kamiokande in Japan. Brandeis physicists are also involved in the CDF experiment at Fermilab.
