Colloquium

MINERvA is announcing the results of a precision nucleon measurement on Wednesday, Feb. 1. The colloquium will be delivered by Tejin Cai. While a student at the University of Rochester, Cai’s thesis work with advisor Kevin McFarland laid the foundations for the publication in Nature from the MINERvA collaboration. Deborah Harris, MINERvA co-spokesperson, describes the result: “This measurement involves antineutrinos scattering off free protons to produce neutrons. This is a new technique that hasn’t been done before: in the past…

At this week’s Colloquium, Fermilab Chief Engineer Mayling Wong-Squires will talk about how the robotics initiative of the Accelerator Directorate is working toward ways that robots will helps us run accelerators at Fermilab. Robots can enhance personnel safety while also increasing efficiency of accelerator operations. It takes many different skills to envision and build these machines. She will talk about how people from different parts of the lab and local universities work together to create new solutions. This colloquium will include a demonstration…

On Wednesday, Dec. 14, Fermilab Distinguished Scientist Vladimir Shiltsev will discuss prospects for accelerators in the future at the next Colloquium. Here he answers some questions about accelerators and his career.
