Fermilab retiree Rolando Flores died on May 25, 2021. He worked at the lab for 36 years and retired as an employee of the Particle Physics Division in 2014. Visitation will be held on Monday, May 31, 2-6 p.m. Funeral services will take place on Tuesday, June 1, at 10:30 a.m. More info.
The first results from the Muon g-2 experiment hosted at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory show fundamental particles called muons behaving in a way not predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics. These results confirm an earlier experiment of the same name performed at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Combined, the two results show strong evidence that our best theoretical model of the subatomic world is incomplete. One potential explanation would be the existence of undiscovered particles or forces.
The next Fermilab Women’s Tea Talk will be held virtually over Zoom on Wednesday, March 24, from noon to 1 p.m. At the Tea Talk, you will have the opportunity to listen to Martha Michels, Ketevan Akhobadze and Shaorui Li talk about their careers at Fermilab. There will be a Q&A session at the end. We expect lively discussion and interesting insights. The event is hosted by the Fermilab Women’s Initiative (WI) and the Fermilab Society of Women Engineers (fSWE)….
This assembly and transport frame is patiently awaiting completion in the DZero Assembly Building. When completed, it will enable the support and transport of the SBND detector to its final destination, the Short-Baseline Neutrino Near Detector hall, 110 meters from the Booster Neutrino Beam target. SBND is one of the three particle detectors that make up the Short-Baseline Neutrino program at Fermilab. A 4-by-4-by-5 meter detector, it will consist in a tank filled with liquid argon and a series of anode plane assemblies.
