From Argonne National Laboratory, April 19, 2018: Scientists from Argonne National Laboratory and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, along with collaborators from over 25 other institutions, are recreating a previous experiment with much higher precision.
From APS Physics, April 2018: Over the last five decades, Fermilab scientists have made some of the most fundamental discoveries in particle physics. But the facility may never have been built had a handful of physicists — chief among them the lab’s first director, Robert R. Wilson — not convinced the U.S. Congress of the project’s value.
From Astronomy Now, April 10, 2018: Researchers at the University of California at Berkeleysuccessfully adapted superconducting quantum interference devices, or SQUIDs, for use in the Axion Dark Matter Experiment at University of Washington. Fermilab is a collaborating institution on ADMX.
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.
From India Today, April 12, 2018: Thanks to a breakthrough at Fermilab’s MiniBooNE experiment scientists can observe muon neutrinos, a particular type of neutrino, with exactly known energy hit at atoms in their particle detector.
From Motherboard, April 10, 2018: New results from the Axion Dark Matter Experiment, on which Fermilab is a collaborating institution, suggest that it is now well-tuned enough to detect axions, a theoretical low-mass particle that many physicists believe may account for dark matter.
From Science News, April 9, 2018: For the first time, physicists are snooping on some of the likeliest hiding places for hypothetical subatomic particles called axions, which could make up dark matter. So far, no traces of the particles have been found, scientists with the Axion Dark Matter Experiment, ADMX, report April 9 in Physical Review Letters.
From UPI, April 9, 2018: For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the interactions between neutrinos hitting the atomic nuclei in the heart of the MiniBooNE neutrino detector. The findings — detailed in the journal Physical Review Letters — remove much of the uncertainty undermining theoretical models of neutrino oscillations and interactions.
