CM2 assembly nearly complete

| 15 December 2011 Fermilab will soon begin operating CM2, a significant advancement in work on superconducting radiofrequency research that will serve the ILC community and Fermilab in building and operating future accelerators. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,

Illinois Accelerator Research Center

23 November 2011 The Illinois Accelerator Research Center, or IARC, will provide a state-of-the-art facility for accelerator research, education and industrialisation. Located on the Fermilab campus, near Chicago in the US, the new building will house 42,000 square feet of offices, technical and educational space for scientists and engineers from Fermilab, Argonne, local universities and industrial partners.

Tevatron tribute

3 November 2011 On 30 September, LCWS11 was winding down in Granada, Spain. On the other side of the world, the Tevatron shut down after 28 years of operation. Fermilab celebrated the life of the collider with a lab-wide ceremony and party. Category: Slideshow | Tagged: ,

From Fermilab Today: Staff and users celebrated the Tevatron’s last beam – Sept. 30

6 October 2011 The Tevatron again and again did the impossible. It was the world’s first superconducting synchrotron. It required the development of the world’s most intense, consistent source of antiprotons. It eventually operated 300 times beyond its original design capabilities.

Celebrating the Tevatron

| 8 September 2011 The Fermilab Tevatron will be turned off later this month after having served the high-energy community for 25 years as the highest-energy collider in the world. The contributions of the Tevatron have been enormous, both from its many physics results and from its leading role in developing the science and technology of high-energy hadron colliders.

Seeing beneath the surface

| 1 September 2011 Accelerator cavities have their faults, and some pits and cracks hide deep in the walls or in out-of-the-way places where they aren’t easily found. Accelerator researchers help improve flawed cavities by taking their fault-finding missions beneath the cavity surface with X-ray computed tomography. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Good gradients in seconds flat

| 4 August 2011 A stable particle beam needs a trouble-free path on its way to high energies, and that means providing it with a smooth gradient to ascend. A team of scientists at Fermilab has arrived at a way to control accelerating cavities so they can give particle beams exactly that – a tilt-free path to collision.

Power to the cryomodule

| 28 July 2011 Cryomodule 1 at Fermilab is now being powered as a complete, multi-cavity instrument. Scientists will subject it to superconducting radiofrequency tests over the coming weeks. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

From symmetry breaking: Higgs buzz at summer physics conference

28 July 2011 Physicists could be on their way to discovering the Higgs boson, if it exists, by next year. Scientists in two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider pleasantly surprised attendees at the European Physical Society conference this afternoon by both showing small hints of what could be the prized particle in the same area.
