high-energy physics

From the CERN Courier, November 7, 2022: Fermilab’s Joel Butler and a group of scientists describe the recent ‘Snowmass’ community planning exercise in Seattle, Washington which reveal the great opportunities present in high-energy physics in the coming decades.

From the Department of Energy Office of Science, July 13, 2022: DOE announced $78 million in funding for 58 research projects that will spur new discoveries in high energy physics. The announcement covers a wide range of topics at the frontiers of particle physics, including Fermilab’s Muon g-2 and the MicroBooNE experiments.

From the BBC, April 7, 2022: Scientists of the CDF collaboration have found a tiny difference in the mass of the W Boson compared with what the theory says it should be – just 0.1%. If confirmed by other experiments, the implications could be enormous and could challenge the Standard Model of particle physics.

From DOE.gov, August 2, 2021: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a plan to provide $100 million over the next four years for new research in high energy physics. Funding will support research and experiments that explore the frontiers of high energy physics. This includes Fermilab’s Muon g-2 experiment which aims to search for signs of physics beyond the standard model, scientists’ current best theory to describe the most basic building blocks of the universe.

An illustration of a blue magnifying glass with a pie chart of science-themed photo snippets and illustration snippets in its lens. At the center of that pie, reads "Snowmass Survey Initiative 2021." Below the magnifying glass is a yellow graph line and various blue bars as in a bar graph.

The Snowmass early career survey is an initiative to seek input from junior and senior current and former users and collaborators of US-funded experiments and facilities of the High-Energy Physics and Astrophysics community.
