Physicists often find thrifty, ingenious ways to reuse equipment and resources. What do you do about an 800-ton magnet originally used to discover new particles? Send it off on a months-long journey via truck, train and ship halfway across the world to detect oscillating particles called neutrinos, of course. It’s all part of the vast recycling network of the physics community.
From Texas A&M University, June 26, 2018: Toback points to CDF’s impact in its landmark 700th paper published last year in Physical Review D and in how it’s shed new light on the production rate of charm quarks.
