Purdue Particle Physics: Tevatron

Tevatron experiments: CDF and D0

Until September 2011 the Tevatron was the particle accelerator achieving the highest possible collision energies between hadrons, it was surpassed by the LHC. The Tevatron experiments collected a unique data set of proton - anti-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV.

The Tevatron initial state is CP even and due to the lower collision energy dominated by the quark - anti-quark initial state, 85%, as opposed to the 15% fraction of gluon - gluon initial states. Numbers at the LHC are almost exactly opposite. The unique data samples provides complementary physics results. The Jung group is involved in the measurements of top quark properties and cross sections at D0.
