The upcoming Short-Baseline Near Detector at Fermilab continues scientists’ search for evidence of a hypothetical particle, the sterile neutrino. Collaborators around the world are participating in the detector’s construction. Its first critical components recently arrived from partner institutions. When complete, SBND will be the third and final detector in Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Neutrino Program.

From Chicago Sun-Times, Oct. 30, 2018: Fermilab Deputy Director Joe Lykken: “There’s a lot of hype out there, but I think it is a fair analogy to say this is like the World Wide Web when there were only three websites … We really are at the beginning of something that we think is going to be transformative, not just for science but for the whole world.”
