We are saddened to bring the news that our friend and colleague Tom Ferbel died at home on March 13, 2022, at age 84. Tom was active in experiments at Fermilab from the very beginning back in the 1970s when he worked on one of the original bubble chamber experiments. He was part of the E706 direct photon experiment in the 1990s and from then until now a member of the DZero experiment at the Tevatron collider. In DZero, Tom was…

For researchers interested in unlocking the mysteries of the universe, having access to the most powerful high-energy accelerator on the planet, a world-class detector, and young, fresh, and enthusiastic minds are a winning combination – and the Fermilab CMS Department has all three.

On June 10, the US CMS collaboration participated in a day of reflection and conversation in support of the Strike For Black Lives, which was led by a group of physicists. About 525 members of the US ATLAS and the US CMS collaborations, including a few external guests, gathered together virtually.

The year 2018 will be remembered as a very eventful year for CMS as a whole and especially for the Fermilab group. Thanks to excellent accelerator performance, the LHC delivered much more proton-proton collision data than anticipated, making the LHC Run 2 a very successful data-taking period. Being at the very core of the detector operations and computing, the Fermilab group was key in ensuring that a large and high quality data set was collected for searches and precision measurements.
