2017 Annual QuarkNet report for Syracuse University

2017 Annual QuarkNet report for Syracuse University
Center name: Syracuse University, 6th year in QuarkNet.
Participants: 10 teachers from local area high schools + ~50 high school students for Masterclass
Program description: CMS e-Lab + Solar eclipse cosmic ray flux study
Mentors: Prof. Steven Blusk, Prof. Matt Rudolph
In March, the Syracuse University group was pleased to host two days of LHCb MasterClasses, which enabled
about 50 high school students from four different schools to learn about particle physics and the Large Hadron

Precision metrology tests for the UT upgrade

Student name: Liam Meisner (Manlius Pebble Hill)
Teacher mentor: Justin Shute (Fayetteville-Manlius)
Research mentor: Dr. Xuhao Yuan (Syracuse University)
Summer 2017
The purpose of our research was to make precise measurements on a number of the
components to be used in the UT detector. The UT detector is composed of four planes of
silicon microstrip detectors, each roughly 1.5 m x 1.5 m in size. Each silicon plane is formed
from 14 (or 16) “staves”, and each stave is formed by mounting about fifteen 10 cm x 10 cm

Fabrication & development of end-of-stave mounts for the UT upgrade

Student name: Josh Owens (Fayetteville-Manlius)
Teacher mentor: Justin Shute (Fayetteville-Manlius)
Research mentor: Prof. Ray Mountain (Syracuse University)
Summer 2017
The purpose of our research was to fabricate a number of the “end-of-stave” mounts for the
UT upgrade project, and flesh out the quality assurance techniques that will be used to certify
them for the full detector. The UT detector is composed of four planes of silicon microstrip
detectors, each roughly 1.5 m x 1.5 m in size. Each silicon plane is formed from 14 (or 16)
