On November 18, the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility and South Dakota Services Division team held our all-hands meeting following the director’s all-hands in September. Elaine McCluskey, Patrick Weber, and I shared some highlights from and priorities for the division. These are the top five takeaways from that meeting.
On Dec. 3, the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility and South Dakota Services Division team held our all-hands meeting following the lab-wide meeting in October. It’s a busy time, as we have accelerated the pace for the entire LBNF project over the past six months. 2019 will start fast as well, with our DOE Independent Progress Review happening in early January.
In May our director, Nigel Lockyer, announced his intent to form an organization to support the U.S. flagship neutrino program based at Fermilab. This program includes the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF), which will provide the support infrastructure, and the high-intensity neutrino beam necessary to enable the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) to proceed. LBNF will require unique facilities to support DUNE’s far site detectors at the Sanford Underground Research Laboratory, in Lead, South Dakota, as well as here at Fermilab,…
