Jerome K. Busenitz, Ph.D. (Illinois), Professor of Physics

Professor Busenitz's main research interest is elementary particle physics. He is presently collaborating on the KamLAND and Double Chooz neutrino experiments. He previously worked on Fermilab experiment E-687 to measure the photoproduction and decay of charm hadrons, on the L3 experiment at CERN studying electron-positron interactions at center-of-mass energies up to 200 GeV, and on the Palo Verde experiment which searched for oscillations of reactor neutrinos over a baseline of 1 km.

Professor Busenitz received his doctoral degree from the University of Illinois in 1985. He joined the faculty at The University of Alabama in 1990.
