ICARUS

Fermilab employees and users: Between now and about Aug. 17, the Neutrino Campus area will be blocked from all nonessential traffic. The moving company Emmert, under guidance from Fermilab staff, will move the ICARUS detector into its new and permanent home, the Short-Baseline Neutrino Far Detector Building, during this time. Once the move is complete, we will post photos and a video for all to enjoy. We will also post occasional photos on our social media channels during the move-in… More »

From Daily Herald, July 26, 2017: The ICARUS neutrino detector — the largest liquid-argon particle detector ever built ­— ended its intercontinental journey Wednesday, rolling through the gates of its new home at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia.

After six weeks’ passage across the ocean, up rivers and on the road, the newest member of Fermilab’s family of neutrino detectors has arrived.

From The Beacon-News, July 26, 2017: Fermilab scientist Catherine James reflects on the large box sitting on a flatbed that contained half of the ICARUS liquid-argon particle detector, at 60 feet long and 120 tons the largest of its kind, which she will work with when its installed and running by the end of the year.
