A revolutionary new kind of neutrino detector sits at the heart of the MicroBooNE experiment at Fermilab. In two new papers published by the Journal of Instrumentation, the MicroBooNE collaboration describes how they use this detector to pick up the telltale signs of neutrinos. The papers include details of the signal processing algorithms that are critical […]

Some theorists speculate that dark matter particles could belong to a “hidden sector” and that there may be portals to this hidden sector from the Standard Model. The portals allow hidden-sector particles to trickle into Standard Model interactions. A large sensitive particle detector, placed in an intense particle beam and equipped with a mechanism to […]
If you have ever tried to watch a movie or listen to music on a plane, then you know the problem well: The roar of the engines makes it difficult to hear what’s being piped through the speakers — even when those speakers are situated in or on your ear. In a similar manner, at […]
This is a meta podcast – I talk about the podcast itself. The bottom line: I really don’t want to do this podcast unless I can confirm that people, real human beings, are listening. Please send me an email at FermiPodcast – at – G-Mail DOT Com.
We are expanding the Fermilab Today Result of the Week podcast to include the Fermilab News feature, Physics in a nutshell. Also, I am personally organizing a year-long photography challenge for people at Fermilab called DIFF, the Daily Image From Fermilab. If you happen to be at Fermilab now, you can find out more at […]
