ALPS Experiment
ALPS (Any Light Particle Search) is an experiment currently being developed to generate and detect dark matter candidate particles in the laboratory. Informally described as shining light through walls, ALPS strives to show the existence of such particles by means of a coupling between axions and photons.

CMS Experiment
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment is one of two general purpose detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (the other being ATLAS).

COHERENT
COHERENT uses neutrinos produced as a byproduct of operation of the Spallation Neutron Source, Oak Ridge Laboratory, TN.  These neutrinos come from pions decaying at rest and are very low in energy.  We use these to study a type of neutrino interaction that is involved heavily in supernova explosions and is very well predicted by the Standard Model of Physics.

DUNE
DUNE comprises two massive particle detectors: one located at Fermilab, and one located one mile underground at the SURF facility in South Dakota.  DUNE is designed to study many areas of particle physics, including matter-anti matter asymmetry using neutrinos, proton decay,  and searching for neutrinos coming from supernova.  Several smaller prototype experiments are ' being performed prior to the finalization and constrution of DUNE.  UF is also involved with two of these, proto-DUNE and SBND.

IceCube Neutrino Observatory
IceCube is a gigaton-scale neutrino detector installed deep in the ice at the geographic South Pole, Antarctica. It searches for high-energy neutrinos that come from cosmic particle accelerators that can probe some of the most extreme explosions in the Universe.

LIGO Experiment
The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) detected the first gravitational waves not only confirmed another pillar of Einstein’s theory of General Relativity but also discovered the first solar mass black holes with masses beyond 20 solar masses and the first solar mass black holes outside our own galaxy. LIGO created a completely new field in observational astronomy. This scientific break through was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2017.

LISA Project
LISA is a NASA/ESA mission led by ESA. LISA’s goal is to detect gravitational waves from sources which can not be detected by ground-based observatories such as LIGO due to their low frequencies. Expected signals range from galactic neutron star binaries to merging super massive black holes in colliding galaxies. LISA will consist of 3 spacecraft flying in a triangular formation with a 2.5 million km baseline. It is scheduled to launch in the very early 2030s.

MINERvA Experiment
MINERvA is a neutrino scattering experiment which uses the NuMI beamline at Fermilab. MINERvA seeks to measure low energy neutrino interactions both in support of neutrino oscillation experiments and also to study the strong dynamics of the nucleon and nucleus that affect these interactions.

SuperCDMS Experiment
The SuperCDMS experiment is searching for direct evidence of dark matter interactions using underground cryogenic detectors. Nearing the end of construction, at SNOLAB, focus of the experiment, is “light” dark matter, particles with masses smaller than ten times the mass of the proton. Such dark matter particles are a natural consequence of recent theories postulating the existence of a ‘dark sector’, and detecting them would open up a window into a completely unknown set of new particles.
