From Physics World, December 1, 2021: Researchers say there are gaps in the theory of neutrino-nucleus interactions and that improving this theory is crucial if next-generation neutrino detectors such as the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) in the U.S. and Hyper-Kamiokande in Japan are to realize their full potential.
From Illinois Tech, May 3, 2021: Rakshya Khatiwada joins Illinois Institute of Technology’s Department of Physics with a joint appointment as an assistant professor at Illinois Tech and an associate scientist at Fermilab.
From National Geographic, April 8, 2021: In a landmark experiment, a collaboration of scientists led by Fermilab has found fresh evidence that a subatomic particle is disobeying one of science’s most watertight theories, the Standard Model of particle physics.
From the Oxford University Department of Physics, March 16, 2021: Oxford University explores the potential of the DUNE experiment and how it could unlock the mysteries of matter and how it was formed in our universe.
From Yale University, March 4, 2021: Fermilab scientist Antonio Ereditato has joined Yale University as a visiting professor in physics for a 3-year joint appointment between Yale and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. He has accomplished several research and development (R&D) studies and his research at Yale will focus on experimental neutrino physics.
From Gizmodo, Nov. 10, 2020: Fermilab and University of Maryland scientist Dan Carney and a small group of scientists have begun work on a prototype they say could one day lead to a dark matter detector capable of pinpointing the minute gravitational pull of a particle we can neither see nor feel. The detector is simple in design, but the theory behind its construction amounts to a fundamental rethinking of the search for dark matter.
