From the Post Online Media Magazine, May 7, 2023: Dark Energy Survey scientists recently unveiled the most accurate measurement ever of the large-scale structure of the universe. Using the 570-mega pixel Dark Energy Cam developed and tested at Fermilab, the DES collaboration’s announcement will allow scientists to understand more about the ways the universe has evolved over 14 billion years.

From Phys.org, Jan. 25, 2023: Researchers at Fermilab, Northwestern University and Stanford University recently demonstrated an entirely new method for searching for meV dark matter. The group is testing a hypothesis that when the rest energy of a dark photon matches the energy splitting of the two lowest cyclotron levels, the first state of the electron cyclotron will be excited.

From Big Think, Jan. 6, 2023: While astronomers debate the existence of dark matter, Don Lincoln breaks down a new paper published in Nature Astronomy that claims to debunk a key observation that strengthens the case that the Universe is full of unseen matter.

From Physics World, October 20, 2022: A new multiple-mirror imaging technique could greatly improve the performance of atom interferometers, making them more useful in applications ranging from dark matter detection to quality control in manufacturing. The technique was developed by researchers at SLAC and a possible use for this would be in the Matter-wave Atomic Gradiometer Interferometric Sensor, a 100-metre-long atom interferometer currently being installed at Fermilab.
