After less than a year of data taking, DESI has already mapped out more galaxies than all previous 3D surveys combined — and it’s just getting started.
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.
Quantum computers go beyond the binary.
The AAS award recognizes Kron’s contributions to the astronomy community through his leadership of sky surveys, including the Dark Energy Survey and Sloan Digital Sky Survey.
Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer has received one of the highest honors handed out by the United Kingdom. In her New Year’s honors list, the Queen of England named Lockyer Officer of the Order of the British Empire, one of the highest ranks in the nation’s order of chivalry.
Uncertainty, entanglement, spooky action: On the quantum scale, the universe doesn’t work the way you might expect.
This month, Symmetry presents a series of articles on the past, present and future of quantum research—and its many connections to particle physics, astrophysics and computing.
Fermilab in the news
From The Hamden Journal, January 16, 2022: With the Standard Model explaining the fundamental physics of how the universe works, experimental physicists are constantly probing for cracks in the model’s foundations. So far, it has remained the model of fundamental physics despite many experiments in 2021 that probed the Standard Model 2021 like Muon g-2.
From Wonderful Engineering, January 10, 2022: A video trip of the 17-ton superconducting magnet ring designed to be the focal point of Fermilab’s Muon g-2 subatomic particle experiment that was moved from Brookhaven, New York to Batavia, Illinois.
From Engineering Update, January 6, 2022: Illinois-based Caldwell Group Inc. has customized a lifting frame that may be used in the summer of 2022 during transatlantic transportation of cryomodules to Fermilab for the Proton Improvement Program II (PIP-II) project. STFC-UKRI in the UK designed and assembled the lifting frame to meet impact, vibration, lifting, and transport load requirements in both the United States and Europe.
