Know your cavity treatment?

Quiz time. It’s another chance to shine!

Fermilab News at Work would like to congratulate Louvie Nelson for winning last week’s quiz! The answer: Quantum tunneling is a phenomenon in which a particle can pass through a barrier it normally wouldn’t be able to cross.

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 eligible for recognition. The winner is selected at random. The winner will be featured in next week’s quiz and receive a small token of recognition.

This week’s question: What does it mean to nitrogen-dope an accelerator cavity? (Hint: A Fermilab user wins a poster prize for his work in this area.)

Send your answer to by today, June 20, 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.
