The Short-Baseline Near Detector collaboration at Fermilab has started filling their detector with liquid argon. It’s one of the last steps before the detector sees its first particle tracks.
Fermilab is America’s particle physics and accelerator laboratory. Our vision is to solve the mysteries of matter, energy, space and time for the benefit of all.
New measurement of cosmic distances in the Dark Energy Survey gives clues about the nature of dark energy
The Dark Energy Survey has measured the BAO scale when the universe was half its present age with an accuracy of 2%, the most accurate determination yet at such an early epoch. It is the first time an imaging-only measurement is competitive with large spectroscopy campaigns specifically designed to detect this signal.
Engineers at Fermilab work on a wide breadth and depth of technical work. This week, the laboratory celebrates their accomplishments and learns about new projects.
India’s Department of Atomic Energy is making a $140 million in-kind contribution to the PIP-II accelerator under construction at Fermilab. Indian institutions will provide a number of technical components for the new machine. The collaboration provides Indian scientists the training, technical insight and know-how for the development of their domestic particle accelerator program.
Mischa Zupko, adjunct faculty member of the School of Music at DePaul University, will collaborate with scientists at Fermilab and members of the Chicago-based Civitas Ensemble to create music based on scientific models in particle science.
Zorzetti’s research aims to help preserve quantum information by focusing on improvements to the way we transport it. The award provides $2.5 million over the next five years to support her work.

Mischa Zupko, the 2024 guest composer at Fermilab, will work with Fermilab scientists to create musical interpretations of projects like the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. He will use actual mathematical models to create his compositions and plans to use the scientific model as the basis for the music.
News Nine, Feb. 20, 2024
The Indian Department of Atomic Energy is helping set up the new Proton Improvement Plan II project at Fermilab. India has reached a crucial milestone and is moving from the research and development phase to the construction phase. The transition strengthens the scientific partnership between India and U.S.
