The annual DOE Project Management Achievement Awards recognize teams that have demonstrated significant results in completing projects within cost and schedule. Fermilab received two of the three given for Office of Science projects this year: one for the Muon g-2 Project and one for the Utilities Upgrade Project, both of which are key to the laboratory’s research programs.

Fermilab’s quantum program includes a number of leading-edge research initiatives that build on the lab’s unique capabilities as the U.S. center for high-energy physics and a leader in quantum physics research. On the tour, researchers discussed quantum technologies for communication, high-energy physics experiments, algorithms and theory, and superconducting qubits hosted in superconducting radio-frequency cavities.

This 2-minute video, posted on Energy Secretary Rick Perry’s Facebook page, showcases the way people from all 17 DOE national labs are opening new frontiers. “I am immensely proud of America’s National Labs and all the great people who work to advance DOE’s mission.”

On Jan. 9, the U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry visited Fermilab and discussed accelerator technology development, neutrino research, quantum computing and a host of other activities that the lab pursues. He concluded his trip by delivering remarks to Fermilab staff in the packed Ramsey Auditorium and answering audience questions.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Secretary Rick Perry visited the Fermilab site on Jan. 9. During his visit, he met with scientists and saw much that the lab has to offer: neutrino experiments going on underground, accelerator technology, quantum computing technology, the 50-foot Muon g-2 magnet, the herd of bison and much more.

From Kane County Chronicle, Jan. 10, 2018: In a folksy, down-home talk at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Batavia Jan. 9, U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry presented himself as an advocate for the Department of Energy’s 17 national laboratories and the expansion of science on a global scale.
