From Futurism, Dec. 11, 2018: No matter how confident we are that it's out there, dark matter continues to evade our brightest physicists. Now, yet another experiment designed to pick up on signs of dark matter's presence has turned up nothing at all. Fermilab's Dan Hooper comments on results from the COSINE-100 experiment.
What we do
Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment
Fermilab hosts DUNE and the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, being built by scientists and engineers from more than 30 countries.
Fermilab explores the universe at the smallest and largest scales, studying the fundamental particles and forces that govern our universe.
Accelerator science and technology
Fermilab designs, builds and operates powerful accelerators to investigate nature's building blocks, advancing technology for science and society.
Physics books of 2018
Symmetry writer Mike Perricone presents his annual compilation of new popular science books related to particle physics and astrophysics.
Top quark couture
The mentorship of a scientist on the CMS experiment meant everything to Evan Coleman, a former physics undergraduate at Brown University. What do you give a physicist who helped discover a fundamental particle and jump-started your science career? Something individual, artistic and science-themed.
U.S. Department of Energy and Italy's Ministry of Education, Universities and Research to collaborate on particle accelerator construction at Fermilab
The agreement launches a multinational collaboration to build a powerful new accelerator at DOE's Fermilab complex. Italy and its National Institute of Nuclear Physics will provide major contributions to the construction of the 176-meter-long superconducting particle accelerator that is the centerpiece of the PIP-II project.
LHC ends second season of data-taking
During the last four years, LHC scientists have filled in gaps in our knowledge and tested the boundaries of the Standard Model.
Joel Butler elected AAAS fellow
Butler was one of 416 AAAS members nominated this year as fellows by their peers.

In The Media
From Tech Princess, Dec. 5, 2018: L'Italia firma l'accordo internazionale di collaborazione scientifica e tecnologica con gli Stati Uniti per la realizzazione del PIP-II, un nuovo acceleratore lineare di protoni per l'esperimento DUNE.
From Berkeley Lab, Dec. 4, 2018: Key components of Berkeley Lab's Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument are installed after months of planning, prep work. A team at Fermilab built the corrector, hexapod, and other top-end support structures. The structures are designed to align the lenses with an accuracy of tens of microns (millionths of a meter) — similar to the width of the thinnest human hair.
From MeteoWeb, Dec. 5, 2018: L'Italia con l'INFN fornirè contributi determinanti per la costruzione dell'acceleratore di particelle che sarà il fulcro del progetto PIP-II
From Forbes, Dec. 5, 2018: If there's a fourth neutrino out there, Fermilab's Short-Baseline Neutrino Program experiments will lead the way.
From Voyage Chicago, Dec. 6, 2018: Georgia Schwender, Fermilab Art Gallery curator, talks about creating art, curating a gallery, and founding the lab's artist-in-residence program.
Inside the international hunt for the ghost particle
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment wants to solve one of the biggest mysteries in science today, namely, why do we exist? Fermilab scientist Bonnie Fleming appears in this 6-minute explainer video.
