Fermilab helps build a tracker more sensitive than ever before for the CMS experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
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.
On Wednesday, April 18, baby bison season officially began at Fermilab. The first calf of the year was born in the early morning hours, with a second appearing before noon. Neighbors are welcome to visit with the newborns.
U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry and India’s Atomic Energy Secretary Sekhar Basu signed an agreement that opens the way for jointly advancing LBNF/DUNE.
The William & Mary professor will help lead the neutrino program into the future.
In particle physics, the target is the site of particle creation. It’s a straightforward role with complex considerations.
New result draws on 30 years of research and development and begins the definitive search for axion particles.
Fermilab in the news
From APS’s Physics, April 9, 2018: Thanks to unprecedented detection sensitivity, ADMX, of which Fermilab is a collaborating member, has been able to probe, for the first time, the parameter space favored by both of the two most popular axion dark matter models.
From Science, April 9, 2018: The Axion Dark Matter Experiment (ADMX) at the University of Washington and of which Fermilab is a collaborating institution, has finally reached the sensitivity needed to detect axions if they make up dark matter, physicists report today in Physical Review Letters.
From Gizmodo, April 9, 2018: Some folks are excited about an especially tiny (and especially weird) dark matter candidate that happens to be named after a laundry detergent: the axion. Fermilab is a collaborator on the Axion Dark Matter eXperiment, and scientists on ADMX at the University of Washington think they’re ready to spot this theoretical particle.
