Meet Anne Schukraft, a neutrino scientist at Fermilab. Schukraft is a member of the Short-Baseline Near Detector experiment, which will investigate ghostly particles called neutrinos. SBND will also help the lab prepare for the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, hosted by Fermilab. In her spare time, Schukraft likes to swim and cycle. She appreciates Fermilab’s collaborative atmosphere and believes it creates a positive environment for current and future generations of scientists.
From Syracuse University, Dec. 20, 2018: Collaborators at Syracuse University are contributing components for Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Near Detector, one of three particle detectors in the Short-Baseline Neutrino program.
The upcoming Short-Baseline Near Detector at Fermilab continues scientists’ search for evidence of a hypothetical particle, the sterile neutrino. Collaborators around the world are participating in the detector’s construction. Its first critical components recently arrived from partner institutions. When complete, SBND will be the third and final detector in Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Neutrino Program.
From Forbes, Dec. 5, 2018: If there’s a fourth neutrino out there, Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Neutrino Program experiments will lead the way.
