Rusack made ECAL Project Manager


Professor Roger Rusack has been made project manager for the Electromagnetic Calorimeter (ECAL) portion of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

There are ten institutions involved in building and monitoring ECAL, which is one the Large Hadron Collider's (LHC)sub-dectors. ECAL consists of 75,000 leadtungstate crystals (the largest number ever assemble for a single experiment). The ECAL team just finished installing the last of the crystals into the barrel of CMS. CERN has set the start-up date for the LHC on September 10th.
