accelerator operation

From UK Research and Innovation, July 26, 2022: UK engineers have started producing what is perhaps the most critical link in a complex and powerful accelerator chain, the neutrino production target for LBNF at Fermilab. Together, STFC engineers and Fermilab have started an international collaboration known as RaDIATE in which the collaboration applies the expertise and facilities of nuclear materials scientists to the challenging environment.

The spirit of cooperation among Fermilab employees was instrumental in the gradual shutdown of the accelerator complex over March and April. It has also been key in the complex’s steady restart, which began in September and is currently rolling out.
