A physicist making great advances in particle detector technology, Estrada is recognized by the American Physical Society Division of Particles and Fields for his creation and development of novel applications for CCD technology that probe wide-ranging areas of particle physics, including cosmology, dark matter searches, neutrino detection and quantum imaging.
A Fermilab scientist and his team have developed new way to make antireflective lenses, enabling big discoveries about the cosmic microwave background radiation and the fabric of the universe.
Over his nearly five decades at Fermilab, Ron Davis has done a little bit of everything as an operations supervisor working on the lab's neutrino experiments. As someone who loves to work with his hands, he puts his talents to use for particle physics and, when he's not at work, on his automobiles and motorcycles.
Roshanda Spillers is a lifelong student. With five academic degrees under her belt and more to come, she's one of the vital lab staff who make sure that the experiments' electronics are in working order and that the particle accelerators are well-maintained. A new grandmother who's learning piano while going to school, she encourages those who love science to pursue their dreams relentlessly.
Fermilab scientist and University of Chicago professor of astronomy and astrophysics Craig Hogan gives perspective on how the Holometer program aimed at a tiny scale -- the Planck length -- to help answer one of the universe's most basic questions: Why does everything appear to happen at definite times and places? He contextualizes the results and offers optimism for future researchers.
This International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we feature the talks, presentations or interviews of four Fermilab women who are pushing at the frontiers of particle physics.
The US DOE has given the US High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider Accelerator Upgrade Project approval to move full-speed-ahead in building and delivering components for the HL-LHC, specifically, cutting-edge magnets and accelerator cavities that will enable more rapid-fire collisions at the collider. The US collaborators on the project may now move into production mode.
Well-known and appreciated by the scientific community for his work on beam physics and supercolliders, Shiltsev joins an organization whose membership included Marie Curie, Albert Einstein and Luigi Galvani.
The American Astronomical Society recognizes Frieman's significant theoretical contributions to inflationary cosmology and dark-energy theory and his contributions to optical surveys.
