Fourier Transform Spectrometers (FTSs) have been widely used in many fields for characterizing the power spectrum of radiation. In this talk we present development of an FTS operating between 50 GHz and 330 GHz. Our FTS design features a small size of 15"x10"x3" and weighs only 13 lbs. The hardware, operating software, and analysis software for the FTS have been standardized to make the production ... More

Measurements in particle physics often rely on measuring the light produced in particle interactions with detector materials. Highly sensitive and fast detectors are frequently required. This is frequently accomplished with the use of Silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs), a type of avalanche photodiode operated in Geiger-mode (GAPD) with high detection efficiency and single photon resolution capabili ...

The LArIAT (Liquid Argon In A Test Beam) experiment at Fermilab's Test Beam Facility exposes a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) to a charged particle test beam in order to calibrate and characterize LArTPCs response. This is a perfect environment in that particle species and momentum can be preselected while event reconstruction tools, particle identification algorithms, and new detec ... More

The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, an important R&D step towards a future muon collider or neutrino factory has studied ionization cooling of muons. Several million individual muon tracks have been recorded passing through a series of focusing magnets and a liquid hydrogen or lithium hydride absorber in a variety of magnetic configurations. Identificat ... More

PROSPECT is a short-baseline reactor-based antineutrino experiment designed to precisely measure the $^{235}$U antineutrino spectrum and search for oscillations due to the existence of an eV$^2$-scale sterile neutrino. Deployed at the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in early 2018, the optically segmented 4-ton $^{6}$Li-loaded liquid scintillator anti-neutri ... More

A crucial component of scintillators in current and future collider experiments is their ability to operate after exposure to radiation. The University of Iowa HEP group is developing scintillators for use in both HEP and medical fields. This talk will focus on our progress so far.

As the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment nears construction, the existing neutrino facilities at Fermilab provide opportunities to test and refine methods characterizing high precision neutrino beams. MARGARITA is a water Cherenkov stopped muon detector that features twin photomultiplier tubes and two small, slightly differing detector volumes. The two detector volumes are designed to exploit t ... More
