From Black Hills Pioneer, Sept. 25, 2018: Two years in the making, a neutrino detector built at CERN for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment , which is being used as the prototype for the much larger Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, detectors that will be housed at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, has recorded its first particle tracks.
From Michigan State University, Aug. 22, 2018: DUNE scientist Kendall Mahn of Michigan State University is featured in this article on the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, which recently published its Interim Design Report.
From Meteoweb, July 26, 2018: Il Progetto PIP-II è un passo cruciale per la realizzazione del futuro esperimento DUNE che sarà realizzato nella struttura sperimentale a lunga distanza (LBNF) progettata dal Fermilab.
From STFC, Aug. 15, 2018: STFC has appointed Dave Newbold of the University of Bristol, who has been leading the data acquisition design for DUNE, as new director of its Particle Physics Department.
From Agencia FAPESP, Aug. 8, 2018: A longstanding partnership between the Brazilian scientific community and Fermilab is getting stronger, thanks in part to FAPESP’s research funding programs.
From WBBM Newsradio: Aug. 6, 2018: Fermilab has preliminary approval for its plan to upgrade its particle accelerator, which uses streams of neutrinos for a wide variety of physics research, by the middle of the next decade.
From Kane County Connects, Aug. 1, 2018: Fermilab recently received the latest in a series of approvals from the U.S. Department of Energy for its Proton Improvement Plan II, a $600 million project that will see a new 176-meter-long linear accelerator built to replace the current one, constructed in the late 1960s.
From Patch, July 30, 2018: Batavia’s Fermilab has just been approved to move forward with an accelerator project that will create more powerful particle beams to “generate an unprecedented stream of neutrinos.”
