Physics for Everyone: The Intensity Frontier March 2

Scientists at Fermilab plan to send the world’s highest-intensity neutrino beam to the proposed DUSEL laboratory in South Dakota. Project X would provide more protons for the Main Injector and greatly increase the number of neutrinos that can be produced. Photo: Fermilab

Physicists at Fermilab use intense beams of trillions of particles from accelerators to explore the interactions between neutrinos and ultra-rare processes in nature. Measurements of the mass and other properties of the neutrinos are central to answering key questions about the universe, such as: How did the universe come to be? What happened to all of the antimatter?

Join Fermilab at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, to learn more about how physicists at Fermilab use experiments at the Intensity Frontier to learn about our universe and how these experiments will play a vital role in Fermilab’s future. Fermilab’s Bob Tschirhart will give the lecture, titled “Fermilab’s future at the Intensity Frontier.”

The lecture will take place in Ramsey Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public. No registration is required. There will be time for questions and answers. The lecture is part of a non-technical series about Fermilab science and culture. View previous lectures here.
