CLEO High Energy Physics experiment at Cornell

The CLEO experiment studies charm and beauty quarks and their interactions with other quarks to form mesons and baryons. The quarks are produced by the annihilation of electrons and positrons which collide at a total energy which is slightly larger than twice the mass of beauty mesons. Most of the information comes from the study of weak decays of the charm and beauty quarks which reside within the mesons and baryons.

Our group built the precision silicon microstrip vertex detector which is now the inner most component of the CLEO detector. Members of the group work at Cornell and in Santa Barbara.

The ucsb group logo indicates that our research involves the study of the three families of quarks.
