international collaboration

Scientists in Latin America recently published the first coordinated plan for the region’s research in high-energy physics, astrophysics and cosmology. Fermilab scientist Marcela Carena was part of the group that collected input for the report. Here, she weighs in its significance.

Engineers and technicians in the UK have started production of key piece of equipment for a major international science experiment. The UK government has invested $89 million in the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. As part of the investment, the UK is delivering a series of vital detector components built at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Daresbury Laboratory.

From Super Interessante, Jan. 31, 2021: A team of researchers from Fermilab and the National Observatory in Brazil used the light of solitary stars to calculate the mass of some of the largest structures in the cosmos — galaxy clusters. In addition to taking the most detailed measurement ever published of intracluster light, the team’s new method of measurement can help further investigate dark matter.

From University of Birmingham, Jan. 13, 2021: Fermilab will take part in an international collaboration, led by Cardiff University, on quantum-enhanced interferometry for new physics. The project’s four table-top experiments may help explore new parameter spaces of photon-dark matter interaction, and seek answers to the long-standing question at the heart of modern science: How can gravity be united with the other fundamental forces?

From WBBM Newsradio: May 7, 2020: Fermilab scientist Stephen Brice is featured in this piece on a new, simple ventilator that has received FDA approval. The ventilator that was created by scientists from several countries, including more than a dozen Fermilab scientists. The Mechanical Ventilator Milano was inspired by a device built in the 1960s.

From Chicago Tribune, May 5, 2020: In the middle of a global health emergency, scientists at Fermilab found they had a lot to offer the effort to meet demand for ventilators to treat COVID-19 patients. Fermilab scientist Stephen Brice helps explain how the group, working with colleagues outside the U.S., designed a portable, low-cost ventilator that still is capable of the most precise functions that bulkier, costlier machines provide.
