Swapan Chattopadhyay is one of 62 individuals elected this year as a Royal Society of Edinburgh fellow. Designated as a corresponding fellow, he has attained a high international standing in his discipline in the eyes of the RSE. Chattopadhyay researches the science and technology of particle and light beams and quantum sensors.
Scientist Jean-Paul Carneiro and collaborators in France are setting the stage for one of the world’s first autonomous particle accelerators. They will incorporate the world’s leading code for computing the dynamics of particle beams into a Fermilab prototype. Funding is provided through the FACCTS program, which fosters productive partnerships between Chicago-based and French researchers.
From NIU Today, March 26, 2019: The American Physical Society has recognized Fermilab and Northern Illinois University physicist Philippe Piot for his outstanding contributions as a referee for APS journals.
Description: Universities Research Association Inc. (URA) will make an award for outstanding work conducted by a postdoctoral research fellow at Fermilab or in collaboration with Fermilab scientists. Alvin Tollestrup will present the award during the 2019 Annual Users Meeting. Eligibility: All Ph.D. researchers in nontenure track or nontenure track-equivalent positions at Fermilab or URA member institutions, or institutions collaborating in Fermilab projects, who are within six years of the receipt of their Ph.D. (as of the nomination deadline) are eligible….

The American Physical Society has recognized Fermilab and Northern Illinois University physicist Philippe Piot for his outstanding contributions as a referee for APS journals. APS’s highly selective Outstanding Referee program annually recognizes about 150 of the roughly 71,000 currently active referees.
Research has shown that the presence of trees and woody vegetation in grasslands can significantly reduce the area occupied by grassland birds. To maximize usable habitat in the Eola grasslands at Fermilab, the first step is to clear the open fields of woody vegetation and trees. FNA received this grant to support the first phase of the project and hire a contractor to remove trees from this area.
Fermilab engineer Ryan Rivera receives the consortium’s Young Alumni Leadership Award. GEM’s mission is to enhance the value of the nation’s human capital by increasing the participation of underrepresented groups at the master’s and doctoral levels in engineering and science. A GEM alumnus, Rivera is recognized for his influence, commitment and passion in creating better opportunities for underrepresented groups in STEM-related fields.
DESCRIPTION Universities Research Association, Inc. (URA) makes an award for outstanding work conducted by an early career researcher at Fermilab or benefiting the Fermilab scientific program. The award is presented during the annual Users Meeting held at Fermilab in June. ELIGIBILITY All Ph.D. researchers at Fermilab or URA member institutions, who are within six years of their initial appointment to a tenure-track or a Fermilab tenure-track equivalent position* as of the nomination deadline are eligible. Career breaks and time spent… More »
Fermilab has enormous, decades-long experience in building silicon detectors. Thanks to an exceptional, cooperative team with levels of experience and capabilities that lead the world, we were able to quickly put together a design for a tracking system that could be used for muon tomography — using muons to see inside solid objects, similar to how we use X-rays. The system won an R&D 100 Award.
