Beam physicists at work at IOTA

Nikita Kuklev (peeking into the frame), graduate student at the University of Chicago, and Alexander Valishev, scientist at Fermilab and head of the Accelerator Science and Technology Sector in the Accelerator Division, collect the last data sets before the end of Run 2 at the Fermilab Integrable Optics Test Accelerator, known as IOTA, in March (while keeping their distance from each other). During this research period, several experiments were carried out, including studies of new magnet configurations to stabilize high-intensity beams for future particle physics experiments. people Photo: Giulio Stancari
