From Laser Focus World, Jan. 12, 2023: What does the future of detectors look like and what problems will they solve? Advances in novel detectors are working on some of the most elusive mysteries in science—from quantum teleportation to neutrinos and dark matter. The long-baseline neutrino detectors of DUNE are part of this line up of international detectors.
From the Innovation News Network, Dec. 9, 2022: Learn more about the capabilities of the anode plane assemblies for DUNE’s far detector and the UK’s contributions to the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment in an interview with Justin Evans from the University of Manchester.
From Science, September 29, 2022: Fermilab’s DUNE and Japan’s Hyper-K experiments are building similar yet different projects that will study neutrino oscillations and search for CP violation in hopes it will lead to answers on how the newborn universe generated more matter than antimatter. Read more on how these two projects are progressing, how they differ and how they might answer more about the elusive neutrino.
From Scientific American, September 8, 2022: What came out of Snowmass 2022? In late July, nearly 800 particle physicists met for over 10 days for the once-a-decade Snowmass process to discuss and build a unified scientific vision for the future of particle physics. Find out what Fermilab director Lia Merminga presented and more about discussions around DUNE, diversity, SUSY, the LHC, future colliders and more.
From the Black Hills Pioneer, Aug. 21, 2021: The former Homestake Gold Mine in Lead, SD was dedicated as the M. Michael Rounds Operations Center at the Sanford Underground Research Facility. The dedication event included remarks from many dignitaries including Sanford Lab Executive Director Mike Headley, who talked about the long journey it has been to support the new facility and that Sanford Lab has made great strides toward building the LBNF that will house the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment at 4,850 level, led by Fermilab.
From The Rapid City Journal, August 12, 2021: The SURF Davis-Bahcall Scholars Program exposes university freshmen and sophomores in STEM fields to a variety of disciplines helping them decide their college major. This year students took a tour of SURF in Lead, SD and they had the opportunity to speak with scientists and engineers from Fermilab.
From the Black Hills Pioneer, July 23, 2021: The Thyssen Mining crew working on LBNF/DUNE was honored for their heroic efforts in rescuing residents from an apartment fire on July 10. The mayor of Lead declared July 23 “Thyssen Mining Company Employee’s Day within the city of Lead,” for their brave actions and positive impact on the community.
From Sanford Lab, July 2021: Explore all the Neutrino Day events July 9-10 to talk with scientists, participate in interactive activities, experience weird science demonstrations, take virtual tours of the underground, and visit the art gallery and library—all in real time! Use the free and simple platform, Gather.town, to virtually go to Neutrino Day town where you can enjoy the events and interact with others as you would in real life.
From The Black Hills Pioneer, July 2, 2021: As excavation begins for the LBNF/DUNE, planning and communication are critical to lowering huge pieces of equipment underground. Read more about how Thyssen Mining and the Sanford Underground Research Facility crews are working together to ensure everyone understands the plan and the process.
From Lab Manager, June 29, 2021: The new Fermilab Integrated Engineering Research Center (IERC) is the first cross-divisional facility on Fermilab’s campus spanning over 79,208 gross sq. ft. The IERC will serve as an integrator for various research efforts and is expected to be complete June 2022.
