The division provides members of the American Physical Society an opportunity for coordination and a forum for discussion and communication.
When the power goes out, what’s our first priority?
The Fermilab Archives now hosts a permanent exhibit of unique Fermilab artifacts. The display is located on the 15th floor of Wilson Hall near the site model of Fermilab.
After its most recent meeting, the committee released a statement on the future collider and its importance to the future of particle physics.
Fermilab scientist Dmitri Denisov recalls how, during autumn months, DZero experimenters occasionally collided with critters seeking warmth in the underground areas by the detector.
Biedron’s research with her graduate students collaborating with Fermilab has encompassed facets of high-power electron sources, intelligent controls for particle accelerators, low-level radio-frequency control and modeling of the so-called “magnetic horns.”
I was a young member of the Proton Lab walking down the hallway on the 11th floor of Wilson Hall when an administrative staff member handed me a telephone and asked me to please take this call. OK!
Early in the history of the Main Ring accelerator, determined Fermilab crews walked the accelerator from what seemed to be the brink of failure.
