The CDF and D0 collaborations awarded the 2019 High Energy and Particle Physics Prize

Scientists at IFAE were members of CDF (M. Cavalli-Sforza, M. Martinez, S. Grinstein) and D0 (A. Juste) experiments with important responsibilities in terms of detector operations and physics analysis. As a member institution of the CDF experiment, IFAE took major responsibilities on the quality control of the data taken by the experiment.

Among a long list of management positions, M. Martinez acted as QCD/SM convener and Data Quality convener and S. Grinstein was CDF Silicon Detector sub-Project leader and Head of CDF detector operations. Other postdoctoral members of the group in CDF took responsibilities in detector operations and the coordination of Top Quark/SUSY and Exotic Physics analysis groups.

In the D0 experiment, A. Juste played a leading role in the design and commissioning of silicon microstrip tracker and was Physics Coordinator and convener of the Top Physics and Jet Energy Scale working groups during Run 2 of the Tevatron, when progress was made in the precision measurements of the top quark.

The prize will be formally awarded at the EPS Conference on July 15 in Ghent.
