For the last six years, the mission of U.S. CMS scientists has been, in a phrase, to complete the LHC Phase 1 Upgrades. On May 1, with the successful outcome of the DOE Critical Decision 4 review, the U.S. CMS group fulfilled that mission. We’re proud of all the work we’ve done to upgrade the CMS detector so it can handle the increased luminosity of the Large Hadron Collider.

University of Cincinnati students are given a tour of SiDet. The bubble chamber is always a "must have picture by it" opportunity. It's massive, it's cool, and who wouldn't want their picture by this giant, science lawn ornament? Bob Shaw of the Education and Public Outreach Office, at left, brought these students. Stephanie Timpone of the Particle Physics Division led the tour. people, detector, outreach, education Photo: Leticia Shaddix

From Black Hills Pioneer, Sept. 25, 2018: Two years in the making, a neutrino detector built at CERN for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment , which is being used as the prototype for the much larger Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, detectors that will be housed at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, has recorded its first particle tracks.

From CNN, Sept. 21, 2018: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains the goals of Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment and how the ProtoDUNE detectors will validate the technology of the much larger DUNE.

A specialized measuring machine at SLAC is helping scientists build precise detectors for the ATLAS experiment.

From Le Scienze, Sept. 21, 2018: Successo del prototipo dell’esperimento DUNE, allestito presso il centro di ricerca ginevrino: sono i primi indizi del passaggio di neutrini nei rivelatori costituiti da enormi serbatoi di argon liquido. È l’inizio di un progetto che porterà alla realizzazione di un apparato sperimentale simile ma 20 volte più grande al FermiLab di Chicago.
