Particles newsletter

The Fermilab Office of Communication is pleased to share the latest issue of Particles, a monthly newsletter from Fermilab senior management. This issue’s highlights include: how Fermilab’s superconducting radio-frequency cryomodule technology is seeing record performance from the first prototype tests; how we demonstrated the world’s fastest magnetic ramping rates for particle accelerator magnets; how the PIP-II cryoplant building is set to bring a new era of discovery to Fermilab; University of Chicago President Paul Alivisatos’ visit to the lab in November; and other news.

The Fermilab Office of Communication is pleased to share the October 2021 issue of Particles. In this issue, read about the media attention around the search for the sterile neutrino; how crews uncovered a geological treasure while drilling the vertical ventilation shaft at the LBNF/DUNE project far site; how the SENSEI collaboration is working with SNOLAB to install a hypersensitive dark matter experiment remotely guided by Fermilab; and other developments.

The Fermilab Office of Communication is pleased to share the September 2021 issue of Particles. In this issue, read about how the lab kicked off a series of town halls to address questions on new vaccination and testing requirements; how the lab hosted U.S. Department of Energy Chief Commercialization Officer and Director of the Office of Technology Transitions Vanessa Chan; how the Sloan Digital Sky Survey received the 2021 ACM SIGMOD Systems Award for its “demonstration of the power of data science to transform a scientific domain”; and other developments.

The Fermilab Office of Communication is pleased to share the August 2021 issue of Particles. In this issue, read about Nigel Lockyer’s decision to step down as lab Director and how over the past 8 years he has led the renaissance of the lab after the Tevatron shutdown to assume a leadership role in the direction of HEP’s exploration into the fundamental building blocks of the universe; and other developments.

The Fermilab Office of Communication is pleased to share the July 2021 issue of Particles. In this issue, read about how all U.S. national laboratories announced a partnership to support name change requests from researchers on past published papers; how Fermilab announced the successful outcome of PIP2IT, which paves the way for the construction of PIP-II; how construction is underway in South Dakota on the raise bore at SURF to create the required ventilation; and other developments.

Beginning today, Fermilab Office of Communication is pleased to share Particles, a new monthly newsletter from Fermilab senior management that covers key projects and initiatives and the “behind-the-scenes” support critical to our success. The June issue of Particles is available now on News at Work.
