About this page

The AMS experiment is a collaboration of dozens of institutions in Asia, Europe, and North America. The experiment is funded collaboratively by these institutions and various government agencies. The AMS internal home page is maintained here.

The AMS Experiment Guided Tour was written mostly by Benjamin Monreal, with extensive help from the collaboration (special thanks to Aurelien Barrau, Marco Molina, Steven Harrison, Ad Delil, Diego Casadei, Federico Palmonari, Kate Scholberg, Manfred Steuer, and Sam Ting). Ben is a graduate student at MIT in Cambridge, MA. He works with Prof. Peter Fisher on the AMS TRD gas systems, and studies indirect darkmatter detection, light isotopes in cosmic rays, microquasars, and other topics. His personal home page is here.
