Prof. Mark Kruse is primarily interested in searches for the Higgs boson, production of vector boson pairs, and model-independent analysis techniques for new particle searches. Within the Standard Model(SM) the generation of the masses of the W and Z bosons is accomplished through the Higgs mechanism, a manifestation of which is a particle called the Higgs boson. It is therefore of considerable importance in particle physics to find the Higgs boson, or discover whatever other theory plays the role of the Higgs mechanism should the SM Higgs not exist. Prof. Kruse led the CDF Higgs discovery group at Fermilab from Jan 2007 to Jan 2009 and continues to play an active role in Higgs searches. In addition he has developed a global analysis to search for new physics using events containing a high-energy electron and muon.
These programs of research are being conducted with the CDF detector at Fermilab, and the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) which started colliding beams of protons in late 2009.
Prof. Kruse is also interested in silicon detector design for high-energy particle physics experiments and is part of a group developing the next generation of silicon detectors for the ATLAS experiment.
