Recent research on muons reveals inconsistencies between observed magnetic behaviors and theoretical predictions, hinting the potential discovery of new physical phenomena or the need to update quantum mechanics theories.

Mischa Zupko, the 2024 guest composer at Fermilab, will work with Fermilab scientists to create musical interpretations of projects like the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. He will use actual mathematical models to create his compositions and plans to use the scientific model as the basis for the music.

KOTA-TV of Rapid City, South Dakota speaks with Fermilab’s Mike Gemelli and Steve Brice on the completion of the cavern excavation and the outfitting work ahead to prepare the DUNE detectors for installation.

Researchers at Fermilab, in collaboration with 3M, have successfully demonstrated that an electron beam can destroy the two most common types of PFAS in water. Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances are commonly known as PFAS and often called forever chemicals. The new research shows an electron beam can destroy the forever chemicals quickly, enabling a large volume of water to be treated in the same amount of time as some other methods.

Fermilab looks towards future of LBNF

Earlier this month, Fermilab announced crews completed excavation work for the massive caverns that comprise the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility, which is being constructed to house the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.

Neutrino oscillations at the wrong location?

Neutrino oscillations, discovered 25 years ago, break the Standard Model of particle physics and have been the subject of much investigation.To further study neutrino oscillation, Fermilab’s Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program has three detectors in the beam, placed at three very different distances to research if neutrinos are changing as a function of distance.
