From Stony Brook University, December 1, 2021: Chang Kee Jung, founding member of the DUNE collaboration, is recipient of the 2022 Julius Edgar Lilienfeld Prize by the American Physical Society. Professor Jung is being recognized for his outstanding contributions and leadership in experimental neutrino physics and outstanding teaching and outreach, especially in the physics of sports.
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.
