News question: Know your processing techniques?

Quiz time: Show that you know the latest developments in accelerator cavity processing!

Fermilab News at Work congratulates Iker de Icaza for winning last week’s quiz. The answer was: The lepton number of the electron is +1. Thank you to everyone who participated!

A winner will be randomly selected from all lab employees and users who submit the correct answer to today’s question by noon today. The winner will be recognized in next week’s quiz and will be rewarded a small token of recognition. Show off your attention to all the exciting news coming out of Fermilab.

This week’s question is:

What technique for processing superconducting accelerating cavities did Bianca Giaccone’s award winning talk cover? (Hint: Bianca Giaccone, IIT student working at Fermilab, recognized for new technique to improve particle accelerator performance.)

Send your answer to by today, August 1, at noon.

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.
