Cecilia Gerber and her research group develop ways to identify top quarks

"Fermilab results of the week" describes work of Professor Cecilia Gerber and her research group (see the group photograph to the right), which resulted in developing a clever way to identify top quarks based on the spatial distribution and energies of their decay products that distinguishes events with a "top fingerprint" from overwhelming background.  Shown are (from left) E. Shabalina (UIC), T. Golling (Bonn), M.-A. Pleier (Rochester), C. Gerber (UIC), and G. Otero (UIC).
