DZero group discovers new particle

July 06, 2007

The DZero group has recently posted findings of a new subatomic particle, the “triple-scoop” baryon. To this we contributed hardware—“John Butler”:/people/show/39 built part of the muon trigger system and Ulrich Heintz was part of the team who designed and constructed the silicon microstrip tracker that allowed detection of this particle. BU was not involved in the data analysis.

Ulrich Heintz also recently gave a talk at the April APS meeting in Jacksonville, Florida titled Searches for non-Standard Model Higgs bosons and exotic particles.

Congratulations to all parties involved!
