The addition of a laser notcher to the Fermilab accelerator complex is an innovative use of familiar technology.
Fermilab is America’s particle physics and accelerator laboratory. Our vision is to solve the mysteries of matter, energy, space and time for the benefit of all.
Bonventre receives the annual award for his “creative and resourceful contributions” to the Mu2e experiment.
Some scientists spend decades trying to catch a glimpse of a rare process. But with good experimental design and a lot of luck, they often need only a handful of signals to make a discovery.
Fermilab’s MINERvA experiment gives a boost to the particle physics field by sharpening a model of a frequent, pesky phenomenon.
A groundbreaking ceremony at CERN celebrates the start of the civil-engineering work for the High-Luminosity LHC. Fermilab is leading the U.S. contribution to the HL-LHC, in addition to building new components for the upgraded detector for the CMS experiment.
When complete, the HL-LHC will produce five to seven times more proton-proton collisions than the current LHC — thanks in part to important collider components contributed by Fermilab.
Fermilab in the news
From Physics World, June 7, 2018: The best evidence yet that muon antineutrinos can change into electron antineutrinos has been found by the NOvA experiment.
From Science News, June 6, 2018: Fusion may have a dark side. A shadowy hypothetical process called “dark fusion” could be occurring throughout the cosmos, suggests a new study by Fermilab scientist Sam McDermott.
From WTTW’s Chicago Tonight, June 5, 2018: A team of physicists announced findings that could reveal the existence of a mysterious new type of particle known as a sterile neutrino. The finding by Fermilab’s MiniBooNE happens to come with several Chicago connections.
