From Fermilab Today: AD & TD collaborate on first cryomodule for new facility

22 April 2010 It is perhaps fitting that the New Muon Lab, a long, low concrete affair facing open fields, sits facing the northern edge of Fermilab’s property. The hangar-sized building is a busy place these days, home to the laboratory’s Superconducting Radio Frequency Test Facility, and bustling with the work that keeps Fermilab pushing the boundary of high-energy particle physics research.

From Fermilab Today: Sharing silicon know-how with Chinese partners

4 March 2010 With the quiet, deft manner of a jeweler showing his wares, physicist Cai Xiao opened a black box that, in a James Bond movie, might hold a stash of diamonds. This one held something every bit as precious. Inside lay a small, green circuit board topped with three shining silver strips: a silicon detector. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

From Fermilab Today: SRF cryogenics system proves its ‘cool’ factor

5 November 2009 Fermilab has passed another major milestone on the road to becoming an expert in superconducting radio frequency technology. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

From Fermilab Today: ARRA funds SRF technology, U.S. industry to benefit

| 10 September 2009 In August, the Department of Energy announced that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will provide Fermilab with $52.7 million to test and develop superconducting radio frequency cavities, a key technology for next-generation accelerators and the future of particle physics. The funds provide a significant boost to the SRF program at Fermilab, allowing the laboratory to expand its test facilities and strengthen American manufacturing capabilities.

A grand tuning voyage

| 27 August 2009 When groups from different countries work together the usual procedure is to send the people to the machines they are working on. A team of engineers and technicians from DESY, Fermilab and KEK decided to do the exact opposite: they sent the machines to the people. On 3 August two machines constructed at DESY embarked on a voyage to Fermilab in the US. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

From Fermilab Today: Fermilab’s superconducting cavity program moves forward

From Fermilab: Collaboration between Fermilab, Indian institutions sets stage for future accelerators

26 February 2009 INDORE, India (February 10, 2009) - The Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Ill., today announced the signing of a new Memorandum of Understanding with four Indian institutions. The MOU establishes collaboration in the areas of superconducting acceleration science and technology and in research and development of superconducting materials.

From symmetry breaking: Project X collaboration forms, experiment moves forward

15 January 2009 Project X, a Fermilab-hosted international accelerator facility, could break ground as soon as 2013. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Harmonics of acceleration

| 8 January 2009 The majority of NewsLine readers are scientists – most of you of the experimental kind. So be honest: how often during the last few weeks, when listening to carols, plucking the strings of your old guitar that you only get out during the holidays or cringing at a dissonant brass band, did you think about the physics and the maths of music? Go to the ILCT-MDB Horizontal Test Stand at Fermilab now and you can experience a perfect third harmonic: that of a string of cavities being tested and assembled into a cryomodule.

Pixel collaboration

13 November 2008 Plans are taking shape to form a new group to coordinate and stimulate R&D on monolithic and vertically integrated pixel detectors for scientific applications in high-energy physics and beyond. In a joint message, the directorates of CERN, KEK and Fermilab have offered their support. They suggested the formation of a regionally balanced coordination board to take this forward. From discussions in recent reviews and workshops, we think there is an opportunity for the many efforts underway worldwide to benefit a larger community. We already have strong collaborations for the development of vertical integration and monolithic active pixel sensors (MAPS). The new world-wide effort would build upon the existing collaborations and open the technology developments to other scientific areas. We will discuss how best to achieve this at upcoming meetings. Our suggestions will then be comunicated to the directorates of CERN, KEK and Fermilab. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , ,
