Particle Physics preparation for Notre Dame QuarkNet students

Hello students!

Whether you are working on QuarkNet summer research or will do an intensive two weeks of particle physics in the International Summer Physics Institute (iSPI), these resources will help you to learn more about the work you will be doing and the excitement of particle physics.

Read and experience:

  • The Particle Adventure. This is one of the best-known and most-used sites for learning about particle physics. Pick any one of the pathways (there are five in the English version) and take it as far as you like!
  • Cosmic Extremes. This is the PDF of a very useful booklet on cosmic rays.
  • The QuarkNet Cosmic Ray e-Lab. Log in as a guest to the Student Home and you will be directed to the Project Map (it looks a little like a metro system map). Choose the light blue dots in the "Get Started" section and follow the resource links. Also try out the orange Cool Science dot!
  • The QuarkNet CMS e-Lab. Log in as a guest to the Student Home and you will be directed to the Project Map (it looks a little like a metro system map). Choose the light blue dots in the "Get Started" section and follow the resource links. Also try out the orange Cool Science dot!
