Using neutrino experiments at Fermilab as an example, Jorge Morfin explains the path of a large physics experiment from inspiration through the proposal process to approval. The lecture is part II of the virtual lecture series, “How to do big science,” hosted by the Fermilab Arts & Lectures At Home Series.
This two-minute video features the PIP-II project, which is an essential upgrade of Fermilab’s particle accelerator complex. It is the first U.S. particle accelerator project with significant contributions from international partners. PIP-II’s high-intensity proton beams will provide a flexible platform for the long-term future of the Fermilab accelerator complex and the U.S. accelerator-based particle physics program. It enables the scientific program for the international, Fermilab-hosted Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment and Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility.
Two videos of Secretary of Energy Rick Perry’s Jan. 9 Fermilab visit are now available on the Fermilab YouTube channel. This 3-minute video gives an overview of the experimental areas and facilities that Perry toured. A 45-minute video of the Jan. 9 all-hands meeting with Perry is also online.
