CDF - The Collider Detector at FermiLab

Program Description: CDF is an experiment at Fermilab which studies high energy proton-antiproton collisions from data collected through 2011 from the Tevatron. The Tevatron accelerated protons and antiprotons close to the speed of light, made them collide head-on inside the CDF detector and we study the products of such collisions. By doing this we try to reconstruct what happened in the collision and ultimately try to figure out how matter is put together and what forces nature uses to create the world around us. The goal is to discover the identity and properties of the particles that make up the universe and to understand the interactions between those particles.

Organization Description: The collaboration involves scientists from 60 institutions in the US, Europe, Japan and South Korea.
