Research Centers

The Center for Accelerator and Particle Physics
The Center for Accelerator and Particle Physics provides a locus for interdisciplinary activities at Illinois Institute of Technology aimed at the continued development of research in elementary particle physics, at developing new particle-accelerator technologies, and at education and outreach both to educational institutions and to the wider business, philanthropic and general public sectors. It serves as a base to coordinate the activities of a group of IIT faculty, graduate students, and staff from various departments currently involved in a number of research programs, and will promote substantial increases in such involvement through a close working relationship with other universities in the region and with Fermilab. Daniel Kaplan, CAPP director, can be reached at 312.567.3389 or at kaplan@iit.edu.

The Center for Synchrotron Radiation Research and Instrumentation
The Center for Synchrotron Radiation Research and Instrumentation (CSRRI) promotes, coordinates, and fosters research and educational activities in synchrotron radiation science and related fields at IIT. CSRRI works not only among the core faculty, but also among faculty in other areas and at other institutions across the nation and around the world. CSRRI fosters education in x-ray sciences both at IIT and in the larger scientific community through developing training programs, academic courses and specialized short courses as well as participating in summer schools and training workshops at national and international conferences. Tom Irving, director, can be reached at irving@iit.edu.

International Center for Sensor Science and Engineering (ICSSE)
The mission of the International Center for Sensor Science and Engineering (ICSSE) is to foster communications within the scientific and engineering community about sensors and exchange experiences with academia, industry and research labs through support of scientist, engineer, student and faculty research and exchanges; provide an interdisciplinary environment for broader areas of sensor research. Rong Wang, director, can be reached at wangr@iit.edu.
