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.

Construction of world’s most sensitive dark matter detector moves forward

LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ), a next-generation dark matter detector that will be at least 100 times more sensitive than its predecessor, has cleared another approval milestone and is on schedule to begin its deep-underground hunt for theoretical particles, known as weakly interacting massive particles, in 2020.

Summer of science

Fermilab’s summer interns exchange lazy days for lab experience.
