NIU joins DUNE project

From Northern Star, Sept. 15, 2016: Dan Boyden, third year physics graduate at Northern Illinois University, is hoping to be sent to Switzerland to work hands-on for DUNE, an international particle experiment including more than 140 labs and universities across 27 countries.

From Nature, Aug. 19, 2016: The next steps for particle physics now seem less certain, as discussions at the International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP) suggest. Much hinges on whether the LHC unearths phenomena that fall outside the standard model of particle physics and whether China’s plans to build an LHC successor move forward.

From Cosmos Magazine, May 19, 2016: The most elusive particles in the universe – neutrinos – might not stay hidden for much longer. Testing for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, or DUNE, began earlier this year.

Our planned flagship long-baseline neutrino experiment, LBNF/DUNE, is predicated on Fermilab being host to the international neutrino community in a manner similar to how CERN hosts the ATLAS and CMS experiments. This CERN model of international cooperation has been very successful. Learn about some of the ongoing efforts to internationalize Fermilab and our neutrino program through this column and video.
