Grassellino received a 2023 New Horizons in Physics Prize as a researcher for her work and impact in the particle accelerator technology and quantum science fields.
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.
Effective Sept. 6, Bonnie Fleming stepped into her new role, responsible for leading all areas of science and technology.
Fermilab welcomed IN2P3 director Reynald Pain and four other members of his leadership team on Sept. 2. IN2P3 is a major partner of the PIP-II particle accelerator project and the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
A postdoc on the PIP-II project, Wijethunga is working on investigating the presence of an electron cloud in the Fermilab Booster.
New measurements point to silicon as a major contributor to performance limitations in superconducting quantum processors
Scientists at the SQMS Center have directly probed silicon’s impact on the lifespan of superconducting qubits. The uniquely sensitive measurement helped researchers quantify how the material impacts qubit performance.
Consul General Alan Gogbashian of the British Consulate in Chicago and U.K. scientific leaders visited the lab on Aug. 24 to discuss ongoing and emerging collaborations as well as tour research facilities.
Fermilab in the news
From Yahoo Notizie (Italy), September 22, 2022: Congratulations to SQMS Center director, Anna Grassellino who received the New Horizon Prize in fundamental physics for the discovery of major improvements in the performance of superconducting radio frequency niobium cavities, with applications ranging from accelerator physics to quantum devices.
From the Big Think, September 20, 2022: Don Lincoln ponders the size of the Universe. That is the hypothetical Universe versus the actual Universe. Read more about what we don’t know and what we do know about the Universe that began almost 14 billion years ago.
From Syracuse University, September 18, 2022: Researchers at Syracuse University have received two new grants that will expand their work with physicists from around the world on projects that include MicroBooNE, DUNE and NOvA. The support comes from the NSF and DOE and will enable graduate and undergraduate students to work on everything from detector construction and operation at Fermilab and Syracuse, to final data analysis and software development.
