From Berkeley Lab, Feb. 17, 2021: Fermilab is part of a team of national labs that designed, built and fully tested a prototype magnet for today’s and tomorrow’s light sources. These light sources let scientists see things once thought impossible. They can use these visions to create more durable materials, build more efficient batteries and computers, and learn more about the natural world.
Earlier this month, Fermilab scientist Petra Merkel stepped into the role of co-chair of the Coordinating Panel for Advanced Detectors in the APS Division of Particles and Fields. The panel is responsible for promoting excellence in the research and development of instrumentation and detectors to support the national program of particle physics in a global context.
From NIU Today, March 26, 2019: The American Physical Society has recognized Fermilab and Northern Illinois University physicist Philippe Piot for his outstanding contributions as a referee for APS journals.
The American Physical Society has recognized Fermilab and Northern Illinois University physicist Philippe Piot for his outstanding contributions as a referee for APS journals. APS’s highly selective Outstanding Referee program annually recognizes about 150 of the roughly 71,000 currently active referees.
The APS Division of Physics of Beams is pleased to present its annual newsletter, available for download here: https://www.aps.org/units/dpb/newsletters/upload/fall17.pdf. Get updated on the latest in the field, including up and coming projects, conferences and potential collaborators! With feature articles on art history using synchrotron radiation, the history of Fermilab, machine learning for accelerators, and the latest on the European XFEL, MAX IV, and SESAME, there is something for everyone in the accelerator physics and user community. In addition to producing…
