Ultracool engineering: Worldwide experts gather at Fermilab for first international workshop on cryogenic electronics for quantum systems
Today’s quantum computing processors must operate at temperature close to absolute zero, and that goes for their electronics, too. Fermilab’s cryoelectronics experts recently hosted a first-of-its-kind workshop where leaders in quantum technologies took on the challenges of designing computer processors and sensors that work at ultracold temperatures.
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.
Scientists working on the MINERvA experiment at Fermilab have examined a few ways neutrons can affect the measurements of antineutrino interactions.
The Dark Energy Survey has delivered dark energy constraints combining information from four of its primary cosmological probes for the first time, an approach that may help design other experiments into cosmic acceleration.
Meet the comic-creating, triathlete, Hufflepuff physicist who’s also the new head of Fermilab’s Office of Education and Public Outreach.
The Event Horizon Telescope collaboration, which announced the first image of a supermassive black hole in April, has won the 2020 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics. Fermilab scientists Bradford Benson and Alexandra Rahlin are among a large group of scientists who share the prize for their contributions to the achievement.
Celebrate the extraordinary life of Nobel laureate and former Fermilab Director Leon Lederman in Chicago on Sept. 25
Join us on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 6 p.m. at the Pritzker Auditorium in Chicago for a special event celebrating the life and legacy of Leon Lederman and looking forward to the future of particle physics. Presented by the Chicago Council on Science and Technology and Fermilab, in conjunction with the the Chicago Public Library, the program will include presentations, a question-and-answer panel with physicists and a miniature physics slam featuring students from IMSA.
Fermilab in the news
From Gizmodo, Sept. 13, 2019: Physicists at Fermilab have produced and tested a powerful magnet of the sort that could appear in the next generation of particle colliders. Fermilab scientist Alexander Zlobin talks with Gizmodo about the lab’s recent milestone achievement in reaching 14.1 teslas for a steering magnet.
From Tia Sáng, Sept. 13, 2019: Để xây dựng thế hệ máy gia tốc proton mới có khả năng gia tốc hạt lớn hơn, các nhà khoa học cần những nam châm mạnh nhất để có thể lái các hạt tới gần tốc độ ánh sáng lưu chuyển quanh một vòng tròn. Với một kích cỡ vòng tròn cho trước, để đưa năng lượng của chùm tia đạt mức cao hơn, các nam châm của máy gia tốc cần đạt được lực mạnh hơn để giữ cho chùm tia đi đúng hành trình của mình.
From DOE, Sept. 10, 2019: Fermilab scientist Bo Jayatilaka is quoted in this article on ESnet, which has expanded to connect more than 40 major research institutions at speeds 15,000 times faster than a home network.
