Encouraging news from CERN

| 5 July 2012 We in the ILC Research Directorate are thrilled with the announcement from CERN this week that a Higgs-like particle has been discovered. The Higgs particle has been a target of our experiments for over decades, and the affirming news from LHC finally means a great step forward. I wish to congratulate CERN and all physicists who contributed to this success. Category: Research Director's Report | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Celebrating the Tevatron

Image: Fermilab, Reidar Hahn | 14 June 2012 The Tevatron may have stopped running, but it still manages to attract a massive crowd. On Monday, Fermilab celebrated the Tevatron's contributions to science, technology and society in the Tevatron Impact Symposium. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: ,

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.

From symmetrybreaking: Tevatron to shut down at end of FY2011

13 January 2011 Today we received the news that we will not receive funding for the proposed Tevatron extension and consequently the Tevatron will close at the end of FY2011 as was previously planned. The present budgetary climate did not permit DOE to secure the additional funds needed to run the Tevatron for three more years as recommended by the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel.

ICHEP opens the LHC era

| 12 August 2010 [...] The ICHEP conference broadly covered the field of high-energy physics from new limits on the search for the Higgs from the Tevatron to reviews of future technology and projects. Category: Director's Corner | 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: , , , , , , ,
