Quantum collaboration demonstrates in Chicagoland the first steps toward functional long-distance quantum networks over deployed telecom fiber optics, opening the door to scalable quantum computing.
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.
Senior engineering students designed a portable cleanroom and a modular cryomodule mockup for Fermilab’s new accelerator complex upgrade project.
The award is intended to support researchers early in their careers when many scientists do their most formative work.
A postdoc on the PIP-II project, Pathak works on beam dynamics and also enjoys riding his bike around Fermilab and admiring the blue sky of the Illinois prairieland.
The CDF experiment at Fermilab measured the mass of the W boson and came up with an answer that no one expected.
Fermilab scientist Josh Frieman, former director of the Dark Energy Survey, has been elected by his peers to membership in the National Academy of Sciences, considered one of the highest honors a scientist can receive. Members are elected in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.
Fermilab in the news
From Higgs10.org, June 28, 2022: This year marks the 10th anniversary of the announcement of the discovery of the Higgs Boson – the result of an unprecedented global collaboration. To mark occasion, the Interactions collaboration is publishing a new version of Quantum Diaries – with some original bloggers, and some newer physicists inspired by the historic discovery. Fermilab scientists are part of the mix.
From The Big Think, June 29, 2022: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln highlights the 10 year anniversary of the Higgs boson, what we have learned in the past decade and what the next ten years of research and discovery may bring.
From The Big Think, June 28, 2022: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln explores the possible existence of a fourth neutrino known as “sterile neutrinos.” With the LSND, Mini BooNE and MicroBooNE experiments displaying anomalies from the Standard Model of physics, could this fourth neutrino really exist?
