Different particles and different experiments require different types of particle detectors. The Fermilab Detector R&D program aims to facilitate the development of new particle detection technologies that meet the challenges for the future of particle physics.Fermilab routinely collaborates with other laboratories and university groups on a variety of projects.
The Detector Advisory Group meets regularly and advises the lab management on Detector R&D budgets and issues, as well as on the priorities among different R&D efforts.
Employees and users at the laboratory are encouraged and welcome to propose new R&D projects, that will be evaluated by the Detector Advisory Group. For more information on how to get resources at the lab follow this link: http://programplanning.fnal.gov/tsw_orc/
