From STFC, Sept. 18, 2018: The enormous ProtoDUNE detector is the largest liquid-argon neutrino detector in the world. The size of a three-story house and the shape of a gigantic cube it has just recorded its first particle tracks signaling the start of a new chapter in the story of the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
From Gizmodo, Sept. 11, 2018: The Large Hadron Collider started up in 2008, and in 2012, LHC scientists announced the discovery of the Higgs boson. Here’s what else is happening at the famous collider. Recent CMS spokesperson and Fermilab scientist Joel Butler comments.
From Crain’s Chicago Business, Sept. 20, 2018: University of Chicago Professor David Awschalom says that accelerating quantum research is critical for Chicago, which is uniquely positioned to help lead the nation, thanks to its University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab. The decisions the U.S. makes now will determine the role it plays in a technology that could deliver a generational leap forward if we are bold enough to seize the opportunity.
From Swiss Info, Sept. 18, 2018: L’immense détecteur de ProtoDUNE, un cube de la taille d’une maison de trois étages, a été construit au CERN.
From Science, Sept. 13, 2018: At a recent workshop at Fermilab, more than 100 physicists gathered to hone the conceptual tools needed for the long search for collisions that produce not just one Higgs boson, but two. Fermilab scientists Marcela Carena and Caterina Vernieri, as well as others on CMS and ATLAS, comment on the plan.
From Forbes, Sept. 8 2018: What will measurements of the constant ‘g’ — the ‘g’ in Muon g-2 — tell us about the universe?
From Big Think, Sept. 10, 2018: This primer on the world’s neutrino experiments discusses the international, Fermilab-hosted DUNE.
From iNGENET, Sept. 4, 2018: En entrevista con la Agencia Informativa Conacyt, el profesor e investigador de la División de Ciencias e Ingenierías campus León, de la Universidad de Guanajuato, Julián Félix Valdez, destacó el papel de los proyectos, las colaboraciones y participación de los estudiantes de este laboratorio, además de la creación de tecnología propia para la exploración del mundo físico.
From Il Centro, Sept. 7, 2018: Italian media covers the ICARUS neutrino experiment at Fermilab and the collaboration’s partnerships with CERN and Gran Sasso Laboratory.
From University of Wisconsin–Madison, Sept. 5, 2018: The University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Physical Sciences Laboratory has been awarded by NSF a $1.6 million grant, with three other universities, to expand a technology for constructing specialized panels for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
