News question: Know your targets?

Quiz time; another chance to shine!

Fermilab News at Work would like to congratulate Mary Tolian for winning last week’s quiz! The answer was: the South Pole telescope, ALMA, APEX, the IRAM 30-meter telescope, the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope, the Large Millimeter Telescope Alfonso Serrano, the Submillimeter Array, and the Submillimeter Telescope

Thank you to everyone who participated!

A lab employee or user who submits the correct answer to the question by 12 p.m. today will be selected at random. The winner will be featured in next week’s quiz and receive a small token of recognition.

This week’s question is:

Why is electrospinng targets for accelerators such a promising solution to the endurance problem that current targets have at higher beam intensities ? (Hint: See how Fermilab scientists are spinning new targets.)

Send your answer to by today, April 18, at 12 p.m.

Good luck! We will announce the winner and answer next week.

Past winners are welcome to participate in the quiz each week. However, only one win per person will be recognized in any 30-day period.
