The TeVatron, a superconducting accelerator at Fermilab, collides a beam of 980 GeV protons with a beam of 980 GeV antiprotons. The Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) group has built a large detector to make precision measurements of the properties of the W and Z bosons, top quarks, and B hadrons, and to search for new phenomena, such as the production of Higgs bosons and supersymmetric particles. The detector contains systems for charged particle tracking, energy measurement, and particle identification. The Illinois group's responsibilities include the central muon detectors, tracking triggers, operations, and trigger upgrades. The Illinois researchers play leading roles in the main physics measurements and searches conducted by the collaboration.
