From, June 28, 2022: This year marks the 10th anniversary of the announcement of the discovery of the Higgs Boson – the result of an unprecedented global collaboration. To mark occasion, the Interactions collaboration is publishing a new version of Quantum Diaries – with some original bloggers, and some newer physicists inspired by the historic discovery. Fermilab scientists are part of the mix.

CERN deepens its collaboration with the US-based neutrino experiment with the provision of two enormous stainless-steel vessels for DUNE’s cutting-edge liquid-argon detectors.

Quantum information science is a key area of research at the Department of Energy’s national labs. Scientists and engineers are working to develop everything from quantum sensors and computers to the quantum internet. In this video, Silvia Zorzetti talks about research at Fermilab’s SQMS Center.

From Department of Energy, June 28, 2021: DOE announces $93 million in funding for 71 research projects that will spur new discoveries in high-energy physics. The projects—housed at 50 colleges and universities across 29 states—are exploring the basics of energy science that underlie technological advancements in medicine, computing, energy technologies, manufacturing, national security and more.

For many Americans, June 19, or Juneteenth, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. In recognizing Juneteenth as a day of significance, we the senior leadership will exercise the choice to take a personal day of leave from work on Friday, June 18, or Monday, June 21, to reflect on the past, educate ourselves and energize our commitment to influence organizational change in the present.
