From Fermilab Today: Fermilab-designed beam position monitors go to KEK

| 12 August 2010 Last May, in only two weeks' time, a team of Accelerator Division Instrumentation Department employees installed, powered, debugged and started up a brand new, home-made beam position monitoring system at KEK's Accelerator Test Facility. It worked flawlessly. Category: Around the World | Tagged: ,

From Fermilab Today: Recovery Act funds keep Fermilab wired

| 5 August 2010 Electrician Stan Kramer spent the better part of a recession-hit 2009 unemployed. Then, last March, he received the call from Arlington Electric that he was needed for a newly created job at Fermilab. Fermilab hired Arlington to do electrical work at the New Muon Laboratory with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

From Fermilab: Fermilab experiments narrow allowed mass range for Higgs boson

29 July 2010 Batavia, Ill.—New constraints on the elusive Higgs particle are more stringent than ever before. Scientists of the CDF and DZero collider experiments at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermilab revealed their latest Higgs search results today (July 26) at the International Conference on High Energy Physics, held in Paris from July 22-28. Their results rule out a significant fraction of the allowed mass range established by earlier experiments. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

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

7 May 2009 Fermilab scientists and engineers shipped their first successfully completed and tested 3.9 GHz superconducting module to DESY on Friday, April 24. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

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.
