PIP-II

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.

The team built a full-scale (10m long) mockup of PIP-II’s HB650 cryomodule for use fit checking and preparing test stand and accelerator locations for the real cryomodule.

On May 5, Ben Hanson and Steve Dixon of PIP-II led a group of Fermilab Young Professionals through the PIP-II Cryogenic Plant Building to see the state of construction and explore the spaces that will house the PIP-II cryoplant.
