Fermilab researchers have announced first results from IOTA, the lab’s newest particle accelerator. The first run, which included observations of single electrons circulating in the ring, illustrates the exciting potential of the versatile machine, both in advancing quantum science and improving accelerator beams.
Machado’s $2.5 million award will fund theoretical physics research to get the most out of Fermilab’s exploration of neutrino science. He plans to collaborate with scientists at Fermilab and other institutions to develop ideas that will guide experimentalists in addressing one of nature’s most mysterious particles.
Karen Kosky gets to see many different aspects of Fermilab. She is the head of the Facilities Engineering Services Section, which manages everything from buildings and high-voltage electric systems to prairie burns and our herd of bison. She and her team work hard to maintain the site and keep Fermilab’s conventional facilities and property operations running smoothly.
