Quantum science is expected to lay the foundation for the next generation of computing and information processing as well as an array of other innovative technologies.
Through its Quantum Information Science-Enabled Discovery program, DOE is awarding Fermilab researchers funding for five quantum-science initiatives. It also funds Fermilab’s participation in three further initiatives led by other institutions.
Here are a few things you can do that will help you be better prepared for the unexpected.
SuperCDMS physicists are testing a way to amp up dark matter vibrations to help them search for lighter particles.
On Aug. 12 a spacecraft left Earth on a mission that will take it as close as four million miles, streaking through the sun’s corona (the vapor-like “crown”) at the record speed of 120 miles per second.
Fire protection systems are in place for two purposes: to help protect Fermilab property, and, more importantly, to help protect the people at Fermilab.
Wilson Hall modernization has been, and will be, an important ongoing initiative to maintain the viability of this landmark building. Here’s a summary of some of the 2018 Wilson Hall modernization projects.
The largest liquid-argon neutrino detector in the world has just recorded its first particle tracks, signaling the start of a new chapter in the story of the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
We’ve released a new sandhill crane near Lake Law to meet our beloved and recently bereft resident bird.
Joel Butler reflects on his time as the CMS spokesperson and what’s next in his long physics career.
Scientists looking for tiny particles off the coast of Italy stumble upon a much bigger research subject.
Recently, the MicroBooNE experiment published a paper describing how they used convolutional neural networks — a particular type of deep neural network — to sort individual pixels coming from images made by a particular type of detector.
In this 4-minute video, Antonio Ereditato, DUNE liaison for Swiss funding agencies, discusses Switzerland’s participation in the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility/Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.

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.
