New NOvA results add to mystery of neutrinos

The international collaboration presented their first results with new data in four years, featuring a new low-energy sample of electron neutrinos and a dataset doubled in size.

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.

Fermilab names Jim Kerby as LBNF/DUNE U.S. project director

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced Jim Kerby as project director for Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (LBNF/DUNE U.S.) He will be responsible for managing all aspects of the project in the U.S. as Fermilab leads the execution of the largest international DOE project ever hosted on U.S. soil.

QUIET: a place to study qubits shielded from the effects of cosmic rays

A new underground research space at Fermilab allows scientists to study superconducting quantum qubits in an environment with significantly reduced interference caused by cosmic rays. The laboratory, called QUIET, has a twin at the Earth’s surface named LOUD. This arrangement allows for controlled direct comparisons of quantum sensor and computing experiments.
