I was a lead proponent for the following detectors:

The CFM I and II monopole detectors

The CDF II ISL

The CDF II Layer 00

The CDF II Run 2b Silicon detectors. 

 

I was (or I am) project leader for the following detectors:

The CDF SVX (1991-1996)

The CDF II ISL  (1996-2000)

The CDF II Layer 00  (1997-2001)

The CDF II Run 2b Silicon detectors. (2000-2001) 

 The US CMS Silicon tracker. (1997-present)

 

I include below a summary article covering my experience in these projects as well as some of the original proposals that I initiated, led or co-led.

(Since the publications for these projects are typically conference proceedings, I have included some

that were written by post-docs in my group in order to give a sense of how the projects turned out.)
