From Nature, Aug. 5, 2016: The intriguing data “bump” at the Large Hadron Collider — first reported in December — turns out to be nothing more than a statistical fluctuation.
From Gizmodo, July 26, 2016: Ever wanted to build a particle accelerator in your basement? Well if one University of Liverpool PhD student gets his way, you may soon be able to do that – with LEGO.
From Physics, July 26, 2016: A team at MIT analyzes data from Fermilab’s MINOS neutrino experiment. The results rule out a class of realist models in which the evolving system does not depend on any “memory” of its initial state.
From CERN Courier, July 8, 2016: Established in 2013 following recommendations from the European Strategy document, the CERN Neutrino Platform ensures Europe’s participation in next-generation long- and short-baseline neutrino experiments in Japan and the United States
From Motherboard, July 20, 2016: A team of MIT physicists has observed quantum correlations extending 456 miles from Fermilab’s MINOS experiment near Chicago to an underground detector in Minnesota.
From Science, July 12, 2016: Data from the MINOS neutrino experiment show that the elusive subatomic particles must literally be of two mutually exclusive types at once—poking a hole in our intuitive sense of reality.
From CERN Courier, July 8, 2016: Caltech’s Ryan Patterson and Fermilab’s Peter Shanahan report on new measurements of neutrino oscillations at NOvA.
From APS News, July 2016: Indian scientists have made significant contributions to the Fermilab program, so it is natural that India is already taking a very active role in the development of a world-leading neutrino physics research program in the U.S. Fermilab scientist Vladimir Shiltsev co-wrote this article.
From New Scientist, July 4, 2016: A new result from the NOvA and T2K experiments sheds light on the matter/antimatter imbalance in the early universe.
From Nature, June 22, 2016: Fermilab theorist Andreas Kronfeld comments in this article on scaled-up quantum computers, which use a technique would help address problems that classical computers can’t handle.
