You have reached the home page of the University of Louisville's High Energy Physics (HEP) group. Currently, the group collaborates with the BaBar and Mu2e experiments, at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Fermilab, respectively.

The group's work with BaBar has been focused on using BaBar's rich data set to compile inclusive hadron production rates and the dependence of these rates on momentum for several relatively common hadrons.

Mu2e is an experiment still in development, and the group's work with Mu2e has so far been focused on developing the software framework, especially software pertaining to the detector's geometry, as well as event-simulation production.

Recent News

We're Number 1! AND Number 3!

Physics World has released its list of the top 10 breakthroughs of 2012. At the top of the list was the discovery of the Higgs-like boson by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations. And third on the list was BaBar's discovery of Time-reversal violation! We are extremely proud of our association with both breakthroughs!
