Hunting for the Platypus Particle

October 12, 2012

Members of the Experimental Physics Group (Professors Emanuela Barberis and Darien Wood and graduate students Darin Baumgartel and David Nash) worked on a search for leptoquarks (particles predicted by theoretical models beyond the standard model of particle physics) with the CMS detector. It was recently published in Physical Review D and is currently featured in Fermilab Today.
