The ArgoNeuT collaboration has published new measurements of the neutrino interaction channel critical for future experiments that seek to understand the difference between matter and antimatter in the world of neutrinos. Their paper presents new strategies for identifying electron neutrinos in liquid-argon neutrino detectors like ArgoNeuT.
The U.S. Department of Energy unveils a report that lays out a blueprint strategy for the development of a national quantum internet, bringing the United States to the forefront of the global quantum race and ushering in a new era of communications. This report provides a pathway to ensure the development of the National Quantum Initiative Act.
Partners celebrate the site dedication of the Integrated Engineering Research Center and the groundbreaking for the PIP-II cryoplant building.
A dash of virtual reality helps replicate the serendipitous interactions of an in-person conference when participants are scattered across the globe.
Fermilab scientists have broken their own world record for an accelerator magnet. In June, their demonstrator steering dipole magnet achieved a 14.5-tesla field, surpassing the field strength of their 14.1-tesla magnet, which set a record in 2019. This magnet test shows that scientists and engineers can meet the demanding requirements for the future particle collider under discussion in the particle physics community.
The new Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument is the most advanced of its kind, with 5,000 robotic positioners that will enable scientists to gather more than 20 times more data on celestial objects than previous surveys. Fermilab researchers helped develop the software that will direct these positioners to focus on galaxies several billion light-years away and are fine-tuning the programs used before the last round of testing later this year.
Fermilab's popular outreach program for high school students, started in 1980, takes full advantage of modern technology to reach a broader audience. Recordings now are available online.
On June 19, scientists at the CMS experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider published their 1,000th paper. The monumental achievement reflects an incomparable contribution to humanity's understanding of the universe — and it's just the beginning.
Construction workers have carried out the first underground blasting for the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, which will provide the space, infrastructure and particle beam for the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. This prep work paves the way for removing more than 800,000 tons of rock to make space for the gigantic DUNE detectors a mile underground.
