The 2021 All Engineers’ Retreat takes place from Feb. 21-27. Registration is open. Zoom links will be sent following registration. Sessions will cover interesting projects at Fermilab and engineers’ contributions. Retreat hosts and attendees will also cover opportunities, address concerns and receive feedback about the lab’s efforts in building an engineering community. Active participation is encouraged, and new proposals and ideas are welcome. There will be a specific session dedicated to engineering talks on finding research and collaborative synergies among…
From March 25-27, the Fermilab professional chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers will host the virtual Regional Leadership Development Conference. This is a great professional development and networking opportunity for Fermilab employees and users. The conference agenda includes career, leadership and professional-development workshops. Early bird registration is open until Feb. 23.

Fermilab plays a key role in the Quantum Science Center, led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The center unites Oak Ridge’s powerhouse capabilities in supercomputing and materials science with Fermilab’s world-class high-energy physics instrumentation and measurement expertise and facilities. Drawing on their experience building and operating experiments in cosmology and particle physics and in quantum information science, the Fermilab team is engaging in QSC efforts to develop novel, advanced quantum technologies.
As the new president of the Fermilab Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, I take this opportunity to introduce myself and the group’s new officers to the lab community.
The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers was founded in 1974 for professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community. Our Fermilab chapter aims to increase representation of Hispanics at the lab and create an inclusive space where we celebrate our roots and share all our wonderful traditions and diverse culture.
From INFN, April 9, 2020: L’industria di solito non utilizza l’elettronica che opera a temperature criogeniche, perciò i fisici delle particelle hanno dovuto costruirsela da sé. Una collaborazione tra numerosi laboratori nazionali afferenti al Dipartimento dell’Energia, incluso il Fermilab, ha sviluppato prototipi dell’elettronica che verrà alla fine utilizzata nell’esperimento internazionale DUNE – Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, ospitato dal Fermilab.
When scientists begin taking data with the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment in the mid-2020s, they’ll be able to peer 13.8 billion years into the past and address one of the biggest unanswered questions in physics: Why is there more matter than antimatter? To do this, they’ll send a beam of neutrinos on an 800-mile journey from Fermilab to Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota. To detect neutrinos, researchers at several DOE national laboratories, including Fermilab, are developing integrated electronic circuitry that can operate in DUNE’s detectors — at temperatures around minus 200 degrees Celsius. They plan to submit their designs this summer.
From April 2-4, the Fermilab professional chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers will host the Regional Leadership Development Conference for the Midwest. Early bird registration is open until Feb. 27. This is a great professional development and networking opportunity for employees and users. The motto this year is “Lift as you Climb: Accelerate Your Future!”
