Research Projects

Accelerator and Beam Physics

The Accelerator and Beam Physics group is developing tools to produce and accelerate intense charged-particle beams and is investigating dynamical processes that influence the evolution of these beams. 

High Energy Physics

NIU participates in the ATLAS experiment at CERN, and the D0, Muon g-2, Mu2e, DUNE, and REDTOP experiments at Fermilab.

Detector Development Group

The NICADD detector group is involved in the development of hardware and software for future experiments.

Medical Physics

Efforts in medical physics at NIU include proton radiology, proton computed tomography (pCT) and particle therapy system design.
