Interests and Projects of the Minnesota CMS Group

The Minnesota group was very heavily involved in the photodetector development for both the electromagnetic and hadronic calorimeters. Current detector activities include the online software for the HCAL and the low-voltage and data optical links for the ECAL.

The Minnesota group is working on a number of physics analysis projects in the areas of electroweak physics and supersymmetry/beyond-the-Standard-Model physics.
