Fermilab’s Superconducting Quantum Materials and Systems Center is announcing a new fellowship opportunity for Black and African American postdoctoral scholars. The Carolyn B. Parker Fellowship honors the legacy of the first African American woman to earn a postgraduate degree in physics.
Fermilab contractors have successfully commissioned a system that will move 800,000 tons of rock to create space for the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment’s detectors in South Dakota. Excavation crews will transport the rock from a mile underground to the surface using refurbished mining infrastructure and the newly constructed conveyor system.
Institutions in India are building major components for the new PIP-II particle accelerator, including radio frequency power amplifiers. These amplifiers power PIP-II components that accelerate the particles.
Theoretical physicist Clifford Johnson answers questions about his work in science and outreach, including advising on movies like Avengers: Endgame.
Have you ever wondered how big a particle is — or how scientists even measure something that tiny? Fermilab scientist Kirsty Duffy will answer a deceptively simple question with the help of some sports equipment: How big is a neutrino?
Fermilab enters a new era of facility management this week as the Centralized Facility Management program officially kicks off. Centralized Facility Management (CFM) brings the management of all* conventional facilities under one (virtual) roof.
Eight students have received the prestigious U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science Graduate Student Research Fellowships to conduct their research at Fermilab.
In this graphic but family-friendly 40-minute talk, Clifford Johnson, a professor at the University of Southern California, discusses the process of turning complex scientific topics into compelling visual narratives.
The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers awarded Fermilab’s Jeny Teheran the 2020-2021 Excellence in Leadership Award. She currently serves as the president of the Fermilab chapter of SHPE. Teheran received this award for a second year in a row.
A proposed dark-matter detection method would look for tracks of dark matter etched into billion-year-old mineral samples.
The first baby bison of the season was born in the morning on April 26, 2021.
Despite featuring in sci-fi and many UFO reports, Antigravity is an idea that is potentially scientifically reputable, and scientists at CERN are investigating possible connections between antimatter and antigravity. Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln covers both the fact and fiction of this interesting topic.
