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.

Particle physics

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.

Detectors, computing and quantum science

Fermilab pioneers the research and development of particle detection technology and scientific computing applications and facilities.

PIP-II: the new heart of Fermilab

The PIP-II project 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. Research institutions in France, India, Italy and the UK will build major components of the new particle accelerator. 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 positions Fermilab to be the world leader in accelerator-based neutrino research. It enables the scientific program for the international, Fermilab-hosted Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment and Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility.
