The ATLAS and CMS experiments have observed a process 4,000 times rarer than the production of Higgs bosons.
During the spring and fall, Roads and Grounds crews conduct prescribed burns in the natural areas to create and maintain a healthy ecosystem for both plants and animals.
Claire Lee works for the US-CMS collaboration at CERN. When she’s not taking shifts in the CMS control room, ensuring the detectors are functioning properly and safely, she takes guests on tours and teaches them about the amazing particle physics investigated by the variety of experiments there.
Bishai and Bertolucci lead the 1,400-member collaboration of scientists and engineers of the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, hosted by Fermilab.
Sponsored by the Universities Research Association, the internship provides the opportunity for students to conduct research at Fermilab.
To build the DUNE neutrino experiment and its associated accelerator upgrade, experts invent customized ways to transport fragile, expensive and highly specialized components.
SAGE camp, a week-long summer program designed to educate and enlighten underrepresented students interested in STEM, becomes established at the lab.
The group is working to ensure that access requirements for employees, users, affiliates and sub-contractors at both the Batavia, Illinois, and Lead, South Dakota, sites are clear, user-friendly and compliant with Fermilab policies.
The LHC Physics Center at Fermilab hosted the first CMS Data Analysis School in person at Wilson Hall since 2020 for an intense week of lectures, hands-on exercises and a group competition to learn about the CMS detector, physics, software and analysis.
Special relativity is known to make mind-blowing predictions, perhaps most notably the twin paradox, in which two individuals claim that the other person’s clock is doing something funny. There have been many explanations, including two videos that seem to contradict each other but don’t. In this video, Don Lincoln explains how the two videos can be reconciled.
The quest to understand the small mass of neutrinos is also a quest to discover new particles.
Teresa Nightengale joins the lab as chief financial officer bringing more than 35 years of experience. In her role as CFO, she will be responsible for all budgeting, accounting, payroll, finance and procurement systems at Fermilab.
IN THE NEWS
From Bioengineer.org, March 21, 2023: Congratulations to Mary Bishai, distinguished scientist from Brookhaven National Laboratory, who has been elected co-spokesperson of the international project DUNE. Bishai began working on DUNE in 2012 and will lead DUNE’s 1,400-member international collaboration alongside Sergio Bertolucci, a physics professor at the University of Bologna.
From UChicago News: Do you have a great photo of your research affiliated with UChicago? Today is the deadline to submit original images for the second year of the Science as Art contest hosted by the University’s Communications department.
