Eight Advanced Detector Research Grants Awarded in FY 2007

The Advanced Detector Research (ADR) program is a competitive grant program in the Office of High Energy Physics that supports detector research by university-based physicists. The ADR program seeks to encourage research into detector technologies that will enable new, not yet approved experiments. For the FY 2007 cycle, eight proposals were selected for funding based on external peer reviews, totaling $804,000 in new commitments. The winners will investigate new or improved detector technologies, including high resolution calorimetry, fast time-of-flight counters, autonomous power and communications systems for array detectors, improved Cherenkov techniques, and very fast triggers. They are:
