Hello, physics fans! You have reached the home of the High Energy Particle Physics group at the University of Louisville. Now that you're here, where should you go? You could start by checking out the webpages of our lead investigators, Dr. Brown and Dr. Davis, if you'd like to find out who we are. You could also check out the page for our BaBar research, to learn something about what we do, where it's done, and why. If you were looking for more general HEP physics information, you can click a resource link such as the Particle Adventure - a layperson's introduction to particle physics. Finally, if you were looking for specific information about our group, and can't find it on our research pages, you could try clicking over to our internal group page. Recent group-related news can be found below, and older news can be found in the archives.

If for some reason our website does not offer what you need, we would be happy to hear from you. For questions related to the group, you may email Dr. Brown or Dr. Davis at their respective emails - you can find these listed in the left sidebar in "spam-proof" format. For questions related to the website, please contact the webmaster.

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!
