US-Japan 30th Anniversary Symposium
Kona, Hawaii
CDF: Collider Detector at Fermilab
• Fermilab Tevatron : Proton-antiproton collider
• Highest energy accelerator / collider,
   at √s = 1.96 TeV, till 2009
• Run-II experiment in progress since 2001


It is certainly an “on-going” experiment, but …
It has been going on for three decades !
 • Rich history of collaborative work

 • A lot of physics output, even for highlights

 • Impossible to cover them all in two 7-minute talks

 • More appropriate persons to speak than myself
   (I am just a “young fella” in CDF)

 • If I would qualify for it, it is because I started out in
   CDF as a grad student … And I am still on CDF
    – I thought it would be the only experiment I work on

     Back to the present …

The CDF Detector

 Running smoothly and efficiently
   CDF Physics
Many important results in:
• Electroweak physics
• Top Quark physics
• B physics
• Higgs searches
• New particles / phenomena

  > 250 journal publications with Run-II data,
  More to come.

CDF B physics
No explicit mention of B physics in the design report (1981)

CDF turned out to be quite suited for B physics
      Solenoid + tracking, calorimeters, lepton ID

1. Run 0 (1988 – 89)
       Demonstration that CDF can detect B decays
             Single electrons, di-muons

2. Run I (1992 – 96)
       Silicon vertex detector installed
       Significant measurements ( lifetimes, Bd oscillations, Bc discovery …)

3. Run II (2001 - )
