What's going on at Fermilab? Check out our new monthly video series for the lowdown on all of our public events. New videos will be posted on the first of each month.
Fermilab Director Pier Oddone announced in August that he will retire on July 1, 2013, prompting Fermi Research Alliance, LLC to appoint a 16-member committee to conduct an international search for his successor. The committee, led by former Lockheed Martin chairman and CEO Norman Augustine, seeks input from the particle physics community and Fermilab employees throughout the search process.
Fermilab and other U.S. institutions have made major contributions to the construction of the Large Hadron Collider and its particle detectors, located at CERN in Europe. From the discovery of a Higgs-like particle to the search for new subatomic forces, U.S. Scientists play a major role in research at the LHC.
Fermilab serves as the U.S. Hub for the nearly 1,000 scientists and engineers from U.S. universities and laboratories who work on the CMS experiment at the LHC. From the LHC Remote Operations Center at Fermilab, they can monitor the collisions produced by the machine in Europe.
Fermilab and the Department of Energy will hold an informational meeting for the public in the Wilson Hall atrium from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 23. The meeting will feature posters and brief talks about the proposed Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment.
A new brochure, Particle Physics at the Intensity Frontier, explains the goals of fundamental research at the Intensity Frontier. It is a lay-language accompaniment to the scientific report detailing last year's Intensity Frontier Workshop.
At Fermilab, scientists work on particle physics science and technology that leads to a better understanding of the physics of the universe and practical benefits to society.
At the Illinois Accelerator Research Center scientists and engineers will collaborate with industrial partners on breakthroughs in accelerator science and translate them into applications for the nation's health, wealth and security.
Scientists wonder why the universe is expanding ever faster. What mysterious force is at work? By recording the light from hundreds of millions of galaxies, they hope to find out what's going on.
Fermilab's plans for a Muon Campus with top-notch Intensity Frontier experiments are progressing. Two experiments have received first-stage approval.
The proposed Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment will explore the transformations of the world's highest-intensity neutrino beam to find out what role neutrinos played in the evolution of the universe.
Project X would allow for numerous experiments at the intensity frontier and would allow scientists to develop technologies for a future machine at the energy frontier.
Beacons of Discovery outlines the unprecedented opportunities for scientific discovery available to particle physics and the potential rewards of the world’s nations and regions working together to form a single scientific enterprise.
America's national laboratories work as engines of invention and prosperity. Science and engineering achievements by the 17 Department of Energy labs have changed and improved the lives of millions.
