The Experimental High Energy Physics group studies the fundamental constituents of matter through experiments at the world's highest-energy particle accelerator laboratories. The group participates in the DZero Experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois, and the CMS Experiment at the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. The CMS Experiment will begin data-taking in 2007 when construction of the new Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is complete. The group also manages the Cosmic Ray Observatory Project (CROP), an education and outreach experiment which is establishing a network of cosmic-ray research stations at high schools across the state of Nebraska. Linked to CROP, the group also participates in the Pierre Auger Observatory, the world's largest cosmic ray experiment being constructed in Argentina and Utah.
