From UPI, April 9, 2018: For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the interactions between neutrinos hitting the atomic nuclei in the heart of the MiniBooNE neutrino detector. The findings — detailed in the journal Physical Review Letters — remove much of the uncertainty undermining theoretical models of neutrino oscillations and interactions.

From the BBC, March 30, 2018: Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer talks with the BBC about DUNE, the value of neutrino research, the Large Hadron Collider, and the construction of a Higgs factory.

The Neutrino Physics Center is now accepting applications to its Spring 2018 Fellowship program, with a deadline of March 31, 2018. These fellowships are to bring the international neutrino community to Fermilab to engage with the neutrino community at Fermilab, for short to medium term visits (2 weeks to 6 months).  This includes both experimentalists, working on Fermilab experiments, and neutrino theorists. For full details and how to apply, please see our website http://npc.fnal.gov/neutrino-visiting-scholar-program/. For experimentalists, the NPC’s fellowship awards will be… More »
