View Resource DESY: The ZEUS Experiment

ZEUS is a collaboration of 450 physicists who are operating a large particle detector at the electron-proton collider HERA at the DESY laboratory in Hamburg. Researchers can find links to the ZEUS physics groups including High Q2, Diffraction and Vector Mesons, and Heavy Flavour Physics. Along with other tasks and components, visitors can learn about the Backing Calorimeter's role in preserving...
View Resource Accelerators and Nobel Laureates

This online article written by Sven Kullander at the Nobel e-Museum discusses the importance of particle accelerators to physics in a historical context. After studying their basic operatation, users can then learn about the many accelerator inventions and their assistance in various discoveries such as x-rays and electrons. The website provides links to descriptions of the many Nobel Prize...
View Resource Penn State: Consortium for Education in Many-Body Applications

Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Consortium for Education in Many-Body Applications at Penn State University brings together scientists from a range of scientific and engineering disciplines to address "many-body" problems. These problems refer to "the complexities that arise when more than a few electrons or atoms or particles are involved." The solutions involve "the use of high...
View Resource ANITA: Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna

Directed by a collaboration of seven United States universities and NASA, the Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) is a "long duration balloon mission to constrain the origin of the highest energy particles in the universe." At this University of Hawaii at Manoa web site, users can download an informational proposal discussing the expected goals, scientific implementation, schedule, cost,...
